At the California School of Forensic Studies (CSFS), we strive to provide students with a high-quality educational experience that combines the best of classroom learning and real-world practical application. Applied Criminology uses the empirical findings of criminology (prevention, criminal prognosis, sanctioning, informal social control and the investigation of effects) in legislation and practice. Our MS in Applied Criminology program is designed to enhance the skill set and employability of those interested in entering--or already working within--this emerging and dynamic field. Courses are held two weekends per month on campus, with supplemental online material between the campus weekends.

Graduates of our Applied Criminology program are well-equipped to enter careers in this exciting field including local, state, and federal law enforcement, border security, probation and parole, education, fire, courts, social services, and much more.
