graduate programs in criminal justice

Students interested in pursuing advanced degrees in criminal justice will have new options at North Carolina A&T University this Fall. The school is now accepting applications for its new master’s and PhD programs in criminal justice for working adults.

Vice provost for graduate research and Graduate College dean Clay Gloster Jr., Ph.D. said, “We are excited to introduce these new graduate programs in criminal justice at A&T. These programs represent a crucial next step in the academic and professional development of our students as they build upon our strong partnerships with local and regional law enforcement agencies, providing practical and research-based training that is essential for today’s criminal justice professionals.”

The programs will be the first of their kind in North Carolina and will be offered online and on campus. Once enrolled, students can pursue concentrations in the areas of digital forensics, social justice, and research methodology.

The state of North Carolina employs the highest percentage of criminal justice professionals per capita in the US, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. That means these graduate degree programs will fill a substantial need for professionals trained in law enforcement and criminology.

Prospective students can learn more about the MS and PhD in Criminal Justice from NC A&T University at the school’s website. Applications are now being accepted.

U.S. News & World Report ranks many of North Carolina A&T’s online programs among the best in the nation, including its online bachelor’s programs as well as its master’s degrees in information technology, education, and business.
