gavelMaster of Science in Criminal Justice/Public Administration

The joint MSCJ/MPA prepares students for positions in the public sector, including police agencies, correctional agencies, and agencies involved in ancillary roles with the criminal justice system. Offering a unique and rigorous curriculum, the program focuses on the administration of agencies operating within the criminal justice or juvenile justice systems.

The program arose from the need for middle managers in these agencies to be versed in the latest theories and practice of criminal justice, as well as possess administrative and management skills including public policy, human resource management, and program evaluation. The program thus provides its graduates a solid foundation in criminal justice and the skills needed to become an effective supervisor or manager.
