Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology
The Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology offers two degree programs structured both for students seeking careers or professional advancement in the criminal justice field and for students who ultimately wish to pursue an advanced degree in criminal justice and/or criminology. The degrees are offered through various formats to enhance availability to students. As well, a variety of concentrations are offered to prepare students to work in traditional arenas of criminal justice and criminology, as well as emerging focuses in the field, specifically cybercrime.
Students in the M.S. in Criminal Justice and Criminology program can choose to focus on one of three concentrations: Criminal Justice, Criminology, or Cybercrime. The Criminal Justice concentration is available in both traditional and online tracks. The Criminology Concentration is available only via the traditional track, while the cybercrime concentration is available only via the online track.
Also available to students is the Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Cybercrime. This Certificate may be completed fully online, however some traditionally formatted courses are classified to meet the requirements of this certificate. All courses in the Cybercrime Certificate program may be applied to the online cybercrime concentration of the M.S. with a major in Criminal Justice and Criminology.
