The Master of Arts in Criminal Justice is designed to prepare students for careers in the various branches of the justice system. The program is taught by faculty with practical and research experience in law enforcement, the courts, and corrections, who are well-positioned to use real-life examples to help illustrate the relationship between criminological theory, policy and practice. The program also offers students the opportunity to hone and develop qualitative and quantitative research skills in preparation for doctoral study. Courses are taught using predominantly a seminar format that maximizes student interaction and facilitates the exchange of intellectual ideas and insights. Those courses that may be delivered online via the use of Blackboard technology will incorporate this collaborative component through the introduction of interactive chats and discussion boards pertaining to relevant subject matter. This will be supplemented by the electronic availability of course materials, such as PowerPoint presentations and occasional asynchronous lectures, in addition to outside independent readings that will be the students’ own responsibility to complete.
