Modern criminal justice professionals must be equally as savvy to stay at the forefront of the ever-changing landscape of domestic and international crime. In Walden’s online Master of Science (MS) in Criminal Justice program, you will study a unique blend of criminal behavior theory along with technology, homeland security, and management skills applicable to the challenges facing the law enforcement community. You will evaluate the root causes of crime and their impact on criminal justice practices and procedures and analyze how law enforcement, courts, and corrections function and interact at the local, state, and federal levels.
If you are a criminal justice professional interested in gaining the skills necessary to assume a more senior role or to transition into a second career as an educator or consultant, then an alternative master’s degree in criminal justice may be right for you. Consider Walden’s MS in Criminal Justice Leadership and Executive Management program.
