Explore a Master s Degree in Criminal Justice

Criminal justice is a popular field of study which examines the role of government institutions in deterring and mitigating crime, penalizing those who break the law, and offering rehabilitation programs. Online master s degree programs in criminal justice will cover topics such as law, police work, the courts system, and corrections facilities. This type of program is designed to prepare students with the knowledge and skills they need to pursue management careers are in law enforcement, corrections, probation, or security services. The majority of positions will be in the public sector, but graduates may also find opportunities with private companies.

Students who choose an online program have the flexibility to adjust their course load to fit with their work and family obligations. Since students have the option to enroll full or part time, the average time to completion for this type of program can range from one to three years. Other factors, such as whether or not a student has any transfer credits or remains continuously enrolled, can all contribute to the amount of time it takes to earn the degree.

Criminal justice students can expect a mixture of lecture, seminar, and research courses. Common topics include law, the philosophy of justice, crime theory, policing, deviance, and ethics in the criminal justice system. Students can also expect research and advanced practicum courses which require them to demonstrate a practical understanding of the knowledge they have gained throughout the program. Some examples of courses that may be included in this type of program are:

  • Statistics for Criminal Justice. Students will explore practical applications of basic and advanced descriptive and inferential statistics. This course will focus on various multivariate statistical procedures.
  • Police Problem-Solving Practicum. This course examines contemporary police techniques and problem-solving tools such as SARA, COMPSTAT, crime mapping, intelligence-led policing, and computer-enhanced problem-solving. Students will also learn about handling common issues, such as noise abatement, property offenses, and traffic violations.
  • Advanced Crime Theory. This course is designed to help students develop the analytical skills to assess theoretical concepts, assumptions, propositions, and variables in criminal justice. The course will discuss both quantitative and qualitative analysis.

Common assignments for criminal justice students include reading assignments, exams, research papers, and situational exercises. Depending on the graduation requirements for the program, students may also need to complete a certain number of practicum courses and/or a master s thesis to earn their degree. This will require students to complete original field-based research and demonstrate a practical understanding of the concepts and theories they have learned throughout the program.

Individuals who earn their master s degree in criminal justice will have the necessary analytical skills and practical knowledge to pursue supervisory positions in law enforcement, corrections, probation, and security services. The majority of available positions will be with state and federal institutions, but some opportunities are available with private companies. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the demand for correctional officers is expected to grow by 5% from 2010 to 2020. This is slower than the 14% growth expected for all occupations.

The median annual wage for correctional officers and jailers was $39,040 in 2010, according to the BLS. First-line supervisors of correctional officers earned a median annual wage of $55,030. Supervisors in this field who worked for the federal executive branch earned the highest salaries at an annual mean wage of $71,620. However, these statistics are estimates. Actual job openings and starting salaries can vary greatly depending on the applicant s level of experience, education, location, the type of employer, and the overall job market.

He is highly regarded as a competent trial lawyer with over 30 years experience representing injured victims in personal injury claims.

Attorney Randle will handle the insurance adjusters and work hard to obtain the maximum for your injury.

Personal injury law is complex and negligence can be difficult to prove. Only an experienced personal injury attorney can effectively establish and present the facts of your case to ensure that you receive fair compensation.

Sarnie Randle will thoroughly analyze your case and offer advice as to your best legal options.

Because of the Statute of Limitations, it is important that you act quickly or you may permanently lose your right to file a claim. The sooner you call attorney Randle, the sooner he can go to work on your behalf. Remember, time is on the side of the insurance companies.

With the only criminology department in the University of California system, UCI s interdisciplinary Department of Criminology, Law and Society integrates two complementary areas of scholarship. It is ranked 5th in scholarly productivity according to the 2005 Chronicle of Higher Education’s Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index with two top journals in the field: Law and Society Review and Theoretical Criminology. It is also one of the few top schools to offer an online masters program.

Florida State University

With the nation’s oldest Ph.D. program in criminology and criminal justice, this school comes with serious experience but still looks to the future. Their newest program in the field of computer criminology provides students the opportunity to become information technology experts on information-related crime, cyber-forensics and computer/network security issues.

Michigan State University

Established in 1935, The School of Criminal Justice at MSU is the nation s oldest continuous degree-granting program in criminal justice. It has a strong focus on the study of crime and security involving identity theft, computer technology, DNA technology and international crime. It also offers unique joint degree options with biology/chemistry, fisheries wildlife, food science and computer science.

Pennsylvania State University – University Park

Not only are they ranked in the top five for criminal justice studies in the country, they are also in the top 20 for the study of sociology, making them an ideal contender for students seeking to combine the two interconnected fields. The faculty is particularly strong in the areas of criminology, demography, family studies, social inequality, and statistical methods.

University of Pennsylvania

Ranked first in the nation among criminal justice and criminology departments in the Chronicle of Higher Education’s 2007 faculty scholarly productivity index, this Ivy League school has a particularly strong focus on the prevention and control of crime.

Northern Virginia Family Law Divorce Attorneys

Thoughtful, Thorough. Trusted.

Almost anyone can get married or start building a life with another person. Along the way, children may be born, assets and debts accumulated, and lives intertwined. But when the marriage or domestic partnership does not last, as happens almost 50 percent of the time — what then?

If you are considering or going through a separation or divorce, or if you are facing post-divorce issues, it is important to have an attorney you trust to help and guide you in a way that preserves your dignity while minimizing the damage caused by separation and divorce. Since 1981, in Fairfax County and the surrounding areas of Northern Virginia, the law firm to call for this kind of help has been and continues to be Wexell Milman .

Our firm offers decades of experience with Virginia family and domestic relations law and the Courts handling these types of cases. In fact, our practice is dedicated primarily to these and collateral matters.

Sensitive to the difficult nature of divorce and its related issues, we pride ourselves on being thoroughly prepared, on aggressively advocating for our clients, and on being responsive to the needs of each individual client. While we attempt to achieve reasonable, cost-effective solutions outside of court whenever possible, We are just as comfortable in the courtroom as we are at the negotiating table. Our high level of integrity and professionalism have earned our lawyers the trust and respect of their colleagues in the legal community.

We welcome the opportunity to earn your trust and respect as well.
