“It starts here. New Online CRCJ Graduate Cohort Program removes barriers relating to time, place, and pace while students are receiving the same high-quality education as an on-campus student.”– Dr. Seokjin Jeong, Cohort Graduate Program Director

The department of Criminology and Criminal Justice announces a new online Cohort Master’s Program designed to meet the needs of busy professionals already working in the criminal justice field, who are seeking to expand their career opportunities.

Designed for current law enforcement professionals who want to progress to upper level positions in criminal justice, the program focuses on both practical skills and theoretical knowledge.

Students in the Program get the benefit of earning their Master’s degree, in a convenient, 100% online format. While the Cohort style of the Program still allows them to cultivate and build relationships, paralleling what they would experience in an in-person setting.  

“The success of our graduates is rooted in the ability to build strong professional and academic connections. Alumni from the CRCJ Cohort Graduate Program are in top justice-related leadership positions across the DFW metroplex.” – Dr. Jaya Davis, Interim Department Chair

The CRCJ department has highly acclaimed and renowned faculty who have expertise in a broad range of criminal justice areas such as corrections, criminological theory, victimology, and management. Students in the Cohort Master’s Program gain a deeper understanding of contemporary issues in the criminal justice system from a team of faculty who are experts in their respective areas and are dedicated to their students’ success.

The CRCJ Cohort Master of Arts online program is a 36-hour, non-thesis degree plan offered in an accelerated format and can be completed in only 21 months.
