Program Description:

CHANGE STARTS WITH UNDERSTANDING

Things aren’t always what they seem. For our society to be better, we must understand its people. You can develop expertise in the psychological causes of crime with classes that focus on trends and major crime problems and statistics, the nature and causes of crime, justice agencies and personnel, and the changing features of the American legal system and criminal justice agency management. Our grads have gone on to become behavioral health specialists, mental health workers, and social services managers.

YOUR CRIMINAL BEHAVIOR PROGRAM

The Master of Science in Criminal Justice (MS) is a professional practical degree program that attracts skilled managers, agents and clinicians from many components of the criminal justice and juvenile justice systems. Combined with the faculty who direct and facilitate the educational experiences in the MS program, the school’s talented and multifaceted students complete the mixture and create an intellectual synergy that’s found in very few graduate programs.

PRACTICAL EDUCATION

Our faculty bring years of executive, operations-level, clinical, academic and research experience in criminal justice to the graduate learning process in a way that sparks debate, fosters insight and elicits innovation. Joint student-faculty collaboration on learning projects is a common occurrence.

The Criminal Behavior Concentration is designed for students interested in examining the relationship between Psychology and the Criminal Justice system. Students will develop an understanding in crisis intervention, counseling, psychopathology, personality assessment and research methods. The Criminal Behavior concentration is offered in the three-semester format and is only available online.
