The landscape of the criminal justice system had been irrevocably transformed. The ever-present danger of terrorism and other forms of transnational crimes necessitates a closer collaboration among criminal justice agencies on all levels: federal, state, local, and even international levels. A graduate education has become indispensable to the criminal justice professional who aspires for leadership positions at these agencies. A graduate degree in Criminal Justice provides the opportunity for doors to open for advancement in a variety of career fields.
The innovative curriculum in our Master of Science in Criminal Justice will deepen the student's understanding of the changing national and international environment. Our graduates will emerge with a firm understanding of crime reduction strategies, dexterity in research and crime mapping skills and the ability to ascend to leadership roles in the field. Even better, our faculty combines both research and practical applications to enhance our graduate curriculum.
Students can tailor their program to their interests by choosing to specialize in one of the following concentrations:
We are in need of highly educated criminal justice professionals to enhance public safety, human services, community development and policies in urban crime issues at home and abroad and the King Graduate School's Master's degree program in Criminal Justice is a passport toward those high-level careers.
Our program offers flexibility and convenience with courses onsite in the evenings, fully online or a combination of both formats.
