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.
In September 2009, Monroe College responded to the needs of the evolving criminal justice system and launched our first graduate program in Criminal Justice. The curriculum of the Master of Science degree program in Criminal Justice has been expressly designed to prepare the criminal justice professional for success in this new climate. 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.
Career opportunities in Criminal Justice abound in the public, non-profit and for-profit sectors. As the nature of the work in the criminal justice system becomes increasingly complex and the job market more competitive, emphasis will be placed on the credential a graduate degree brings.
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.
I invite you to browse our website and please contact us with further questions. I look forward to welcoming you to Monroe College King Graduate School’s Master in Criminal Degree program!
