The Master of Science in Criminal Justice Program on University Campus is designed to serve the needs of working professionals. The program is offered in several formats: Campus and VTT (video conferencing) during the three semesters (fall, spring, and summer), which consist of eight four-hour classes scheduled in the morning and afternoon on Saturday and/or Sundays in an alternating format (when applicable); online (eight-week sessions); University Centers (eight-week sessions); Institute for Excellence in Criminal Justice Administration, which includes the Command Officer Management Seminar Program (special program offerings) and Summer Institute held at the University Campus; or specially arranged programs such as the College Learning at Sea Program. In the online program only, CRJ 530 Ethical Issues in Criminal Justice is a prerequisite for all courses.
