Master of Science in Criminology
With its focus on criminal behavior, the master's in Criminology differs from a criminal justice degree that emphasizes procedures related to the apprehension of criminals. It expands upon students' existing criminal justice knowledge by providing valuable insights into patterns and behaviors.
A master's degree in criminology can be beneficial to front-line law enforcement officers and criminal justice professionals planning to move into management roles or government agencies such as the FBI and the DEA. With its wide-ranging applications, the program can be beneficial to individuals in a number of other fields as well, such as public policy, private and industrial security, social services, and victimology. Students are encouraged to use their specific area of criminological interest as an area of research and study during the program.
