Masters in Criminal Justice Schools

Finding the right graduate school for a criminal justice degree may turn on your current job or family situation. Many people who enroll in a Master of Criminal Justice program are law enforcement or criminal justice professionals returning to school to upgrade their academic credentials. In the field of criminal justice today a bachelor's degree can carry an entry level probation officer or police officer for many years, but at some point the desire to move up the career ladder is going to require a graduate degree. Our selection of schools has a variety of degree options among them, serving as examples of the programs available for returning students or those who have just graduated and are moving on to graduate school

  1. Columbia Southern University has a Master of Criminal Justice Administration degree that requires 37 credit hours of course work.
