Our Program

The Master of Arts in International Crime and Justice reflects the College’s commitment to the internationalization of criminal justice education and builds on the strengths of our undergraduate degree in international criminal justice by opening the possibility of graduate education in this field. Indeed, this is the first program of this nature in the United States. The MA in International Crime and Justice combines advanced substantive knowledge of international crime challenges and domestic and international responses, with analytic and research techniques in an interdisciplinary framework. It aims to produce graduates with a truly global outlook on criminal justice, a moral commitment to international justice, and professional competence in the increasingly multicultural workforce.

This program may also be completed fully online.

Degree Requirement

Thirty-six (36) credits are required to complete your graduate program. Students should be able to complete the coursework in 2 years if they maintain full-time status (defined as 9 credits per semester over two years) OR, if they are part-time (at least one course per semester), students have up to 8 years to complete their coursework. If you take courses during the summer, you may complete the program in less than two years. If you work full time, it is recommended that you limit yourself to a maximum of two courses a semester. Remember, graduate coursework is more demanding than undergraduate coursework, and you must maintain a 3.0 GPA to remain in good standing as well as graduate.
