The Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice is designed to develop students and practitioners with skills to promote the administration of justice, crime prevention and control in a diverse and global society. The Master of Science degree is a dual option program, whereby students select either a research option where they will be required to complete all course work including a thesis or the professional track where the student will be required to complete all coursework to include a capstone course. The program will equip students with critical and analytical skills to assume roles in management, supervision and research and to better understand contemporary issues.
