Online Masters in Criminal Justice Program Among Best in the Nation

January 27, 2021 - JJ Thomas

The Online Masters Program in Criminal Justice has been ranked #5 in the Nation by U.S. News and World Report. Thank you to all of our students, faculty, staff, and alumni who have built and represented the School of Criminal Justice and its programs in such a phenomenal light. This program is one of three nationally-ranked programs within the College of Social Science. 

In 1998, the School of Criminal Justice began offering its Masters of Science in Criminal Justice program on the internet – the first online degree program offered by MSU. The program is designed to add new dimensions to the skills of career people in various areas of criminal justice and security. A number of online support services are available to assist students as they progress through the program.

Students enrolled in the program may choose to follow the general requirements for the Masters in Criminal Justice, specialize in Security Management or follow an international focus. Courses are offered entirely online, and are taught by the same faculty members who are involved in the on-campus program.
