Wayne State University’s new online master’s degree in criminal justice provides students with the ability to advance their career and academic credentials while taking courses that fit into hectic work schedules and lifestyles.
Beginning in Fall 2014, applicants for the Master of Science in Criminal Justice have the option to complete the degree fully online. And, by taking just two courses per semester, year-round, students can complete the master’s in less than two years.
The online program is identical to our traditional classroom-based program and focuses on a broad range of criminal justice issues, emphasizing both the problem of crime and the criminal justice system’s response to it. Students learn the latest evidence-based practices for crime control, how to understand and interpret data and how to find resources to implement innovative methods.
Students in the online master’s program enjoy the benefit of basic in-state tuition, regardless of the state in which they reside.
