The Master of Arts in Criminal Justice (MACJ) is an
interdisciplinary program that offers a comprehensive, rigorous,
analytic study of crime and the societal responses to it. Our focus is on the application of theory and research methods
in the development of initiatives, policies, and practice. In
addition, we give special emphasis to criminal justice ethics,
issues of diversity in criminal justice, critical thinking, and
leadership. Our students go on to successful careers in all sectors of the
criminal justice system, including law enforcement, courts,
corrections, social service, policy, and research.
