Master of Arts in Criminal Justice
Washington State University’s online Master of Arts in Criminal Justice emphasizes applied research that gives you the knowledge you need to lead criminal justice institutions.
You’ll learn how to create and critique research-based theory. You’ll understand the data, and know how to turn that data into real-life solutions.
You’ll be prepared to improve operations, to apply for and receive grants, and to advance your career.
The online program
WSU’s online criminal justice master’s courses are taught by the same award-winning criminal justice faculty who teach on the physical campus. These faculty members lend their expertise to a broad range of government agencies and nongovernmental groups. Their practical experience enriches their courses and prepares graduates for workplace success.
When you graduate, your WSU diploma will be respected both nationally and internationally. You’ll also become part of the Cougar Nation, giving you access to a worldwide network of alumni, many of whom hold top posts in criminal justice agencies.
Besides receiving an exceptional education, students enrolled in the Global Campus can also participate in activities and events similar to those offered on a physical WSU campus through the Global Connections program. These include cultural events, online career fairs, and webinars showcasing the knowledge of our faculty.
