Applied Criminology, Master of Science

Our MS in Applied Criminology prepares you for a career focusing on the social and practical problems of law and justice policy in local, national, and international environments. Our program offers three emphases:  

  • Communities and justice

  • Socio-legal policies and practices

  • Trans-national crime and justice

Whichever path you choose, you’ll learn how cultural and political issues relate to criminal justice around the world, and engage with faculty mentors in research and projects that interest you, such as relationships between law and society or how justice is applied specifically to juveniles, women, and ethnic groups. Our graduates excel in a variety of careers, with skills valuable for being an attorney, criminologist, child advocate, research analyst, or in law enforcement.
