MASTER OF SCIENCE IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE ADMINISTRATION

Hilbert College has built a tremendous record as a leader in criminal justice study in Western New York. Our undergraduate programs in criminal justice, forensic science, and computer security and information assurance enroll more than 500 students on an annual basis. 

We are now proud to extend our expertise in the criminal justice field with the Master of Science in Criminal Justice Administration degree. This program reflects a commitment to quality education and supports the mission, values and vision of Hilbert College.

Students develop skills in management, finance, budgeting and research, and challenge their abilities in courses such as ethics and organizational development. Graduates of this program will have developed their respective talents to become leaders in the many fields and agencies that comprise the criminal justice system.

Unique to Hilbert, the curriculum has been devised with an ongoing, integrated research project throughout the program. Unlike most graduate programs that ask for a final semester thesis, the Hilbert program allows a more thorough application of theory and research as it is developed and worked on throughout the program.

Challenged by the various coursework along the way, student research will act as a foundation upon which to ground and challenge theory to a practical application, culminating in a final capstone project.

The accelerated cohort model is designed for individuals who are employed full time.

Students take one course at a time and move with a cohort, developing colleagues and friends. Cohorts remain together throughout the 18-month program, changing a course of study every five weeks to complete 12 sessions.

Classes meet on Wednesday evenings from 6 to 9 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
