The Master of Science in Criminal Justice degree program attracts practitioners, agents, and skilled managers from various sections of the juvenile justice system and criminal justice system. The three concentrations students can focus on are homeland security administration, justice administration, and crime analysis.
The homeland security's administration concentration, designed for emergency management personnel and law enforcement officers, enriches the student's ability to react effectively to natural catastrophic events and terrorist threats. The justice administration's concentration provides students with new perspectives in contemporary issues, statistical applications, resource management, ethical and legal issues, policy analysis and information, analysis and research, management and law practices, design of training sessions and educational programs, and administrative theory. The crime analysis concentration gives students a theoretical crime analysis overview, research design, statistical applications, and the criminal intelligence process. The job outlook for criminal justice professionals looks extremely promising.
