The Graduate Handbook for the Master of Science in Criminal Justice

The Graduate Handbook is a vital resource for both graduate students and faculty teaching graduate level courses. It is the primary document for answering the majority of the questions that will arise during a student’s participation in the graduate program. Occasionally, questions arise that may not be addressed by the Manual. In those cases, students or faculty shall direct their questions to the Graduate Coordinator for resolution.
