Starting this fall, the Criminology and Criminal Justice program will kick off its new Master of Science degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice. The program is aimed at both current criminal justice professionals who want to advance their careers and at recent criminal justice graduates who want to further their education.

“Criminology and Criminal Justice at UM-Dearborn is one of the fastest growing fields at the university, with almost 350 majors,” said Dr. Donald Shelton, a former Washtenaw County Circuit judge. “This graduate degree is an exciting extension of that program that has been in the planning stages for the last two years.”

Enrollment is taking place this summer. The program requires 30-31 graduate credit hours and offers both a Masters Essay track for students who are seeking a terminal degree in the field and a Masters Thesis track for those who may want to later pursue a doctoral degree.  Classes will be offered both on campus and online. The 20 percent Community Service Personnel scholarship is available to public safety officers in participating agencies. 

To apply, go online to the Graduate Program website or contact Dr. Shelton or Ms. Janice Jones in the CCJ office to make an appointment for a personal discussion.
