Arizona Graduate Criminal Justice Schools with Master's and PhD Degree Programs

Arizona State University College of Criminology and Criminal Justice

This school is known nationwide as being one of the premier criminal justice departments. The school is successful because it provides students a mix of theory and practice. The school emphasizes the importance of training students who understand method, philosophy, and theory, but also understand why these concepts are important from a practical and activity-based standpoint. The school offers a wide range of concentrations and disciplines for criminology and criminal justice undergraduate and graduate students. The school offers undergraduate degrees, master degrees, and PhD degrees. The school also offers programs for working professionals who cannot afford to drop out of the workforce in order to pursue degrees full-time. These programs include a number of online and evening courses.

Master of Science in Criminology and Criminal Justice:

This degree program begins with a core education in key concepts and issues in the criminal justice and criminology field. Students take a number of courses in criminology theory and method. They analyze policy and social defense. They also take a number of classes that use a sociological viewpoint to look at the criminal justice system. Students also study law. They read and research issues such as public health, juvenile delinquency, and the court system. Students then work on independent projects with experienced faculty advisors who oversee the projects until the moment of completion. Students are encouraged to engage in internships that may happen at the state or federal level of government. Students are also encouraged to look outside the government at private firms and companies that may hire criminal justice students. Students who complete this degree are prepared for a number of high paying careers in the government and private sector. Many also go on to pursue PhD degrees in criminal justice and criminology.

PhD in Criminal Justice and Criminology:

This program is for students who have already completed master degrees in criminal justice and criminology and want to further their understanding of the concepts, perform scholarship in the field, and go on to teach criminology and criminal justice at the college level. Students begin with a further exploration of many of the theories and concepts explored in the master degree program. Students also continue work on their independent studies, which concentrate on individual issues in the criminal justice field. Students continue to work closely with faculty members who guide and direct students toward completion of their PhD dissertations. Students are also encouraged to do fieldwork. This work not only enhances their own independent study by providing valuable firsthand experience, but it also allows criminal justice students to work within the criminal justice field. This provides a number of opportunities for future career options. Students who complete this program often teach at the undergraduate and graduate level. Others go on to occupy high level positions in a number of different government agencies.
