Criminology & Criminal Justice Policy - MA

Course content

The CCJP MA program is a collaborative program between the Department of Sociology and Anthropology and the Department of Political Science. The program distinguishes itself from other MA programs in Criminology by having a strong emphasis on criminal justice and governance, while still providing students with the necessary background for continued studies in Criminology, Sociology or Political Science.

In addition to providing the appropriate background for continued graduate studies in Criminology, Sociology or Political Science, the program has a number of other benefits. First, the program provides students with the background necessary to enter into employment or advance their careers in the criminal justice system, either in a policy or administrative capacity for government or non-governmental organizations, or as front-line service providers (police officers, probation officers and corrections officers). Students might also find employment as instructors at colleges that offer criminal justice programs. Second, the program equips students with general tools in critical thinking, communication and methodology, which would be useful for employment or educational opportunities beyond the criminal justice field. Finally, the program aims to develop citizens and professionals who will be able to make and express thoughtful judgments on a range of important issues raised in the context of criminology and criminal justice policy and governance.
