Temple University's Graduate Criminal Justice Programs

The criminal justice system in America is one of the most unique legal systems in the country. Regardless of who they are, how much money they have, or what they've done, the criminal justice system seeks to provide each individual with the same chance at qualified representation in court and fair treatment if they do become incarcerated. If you're thinking about pursuing a career that will allow you to bring this system into the next era using technology and modern methodologies, the graduate criminal justice program at Temple University might be the best place for you to continue your education.

Master of Arts in Criminal Justice

Earning a master's degree in the field of criminal justice will give you the ability to move beyond the hands on jobs of law enforcement and correctional services. Instead, you will have the historical and theoretical background to be part of the team that decides how criminal justice organizations will move forward in the future. Your communication and critical thinking skills will allow you to take on leadership positions that will propel both the organization and the individuals within its system to success during and after their incarceration.

Ph.D in Criminal Justice

Some criminal justice students will find that as their master's studies are coming to an end, they still want to pursue their knowledge of the field. That's why Temple University is proud to offer one of the few Ph.D programs for criminal justice in the nation. The goal of this advanced program is to train students to use scientific research skills to inform the criminal justice community, and explore psychological and environmental influences on behavior and rehabilitation. Students that graduate from this program will be poised to become future leaders in academic, private and governmental research settings.
