Masters in Criminology

Generally, to be accepted into a Masters in Criminology program, you will be required to already have an undergraduate degree in a similar field. You can expect classes to be taught in a number of different ways, whether you choose to physically attend classes or sit in online classes. Text files, audio clips and video feeds can all be accessed from your personal home computer. The courses you will take include crime and social deviance, social problems, crime statistics, and research methods in criminology.

For students seeking a graduate-level education in criminology, now you have the option of completing Criminology Master’s Programs exclusively online. There are several accredited schools offering online master’s degree programs in this field, increasing the convenience level of your studies without sacrificing the quality of your education. Your degree will still carry the same level of respect as those offered by traditional classroom-setting universities, but you can complete your studies at a lower cost and at far greater convenience to you. As long as the program you are studying is established by an accredited university, you have nothing stopping you from completing an excellent education online.

Many graduates proceed on to become criminologists or sociologists with a focus on crime and the effect it has on the societies in which it occurs. Federal and state government careers are often sought after, as are the fields of research and education. Based on reports made by the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the career of criminology is expected to remain a strong one for the next several years. It has been found that those with master’s degrees climb further up the corporate ladder than those with bachelor’s degrees. For those who chose to work with the federal government in 2009, the median income was more than $100,000.
