What you'll study
Day in and day out, you're confronted with issues that threaten local communities. Leverage your law enforcement experience to play a role in protecting the nation from larger threats and in leading the response to these dangers. Earning a Master of Science in Administration of Justice and Security with a concentration in Global and Homeland Security may put you on the path to a new career as a command officer, private security director or intelligence analyst. Learn how to work together with other law enforcement agencies to solve problems, and gain the skills you need to manage critical incidents, intelligence, cybercrime and technology while getting a foundation in criminology.
Graduates of Criminal Justice and Security programs may need to meet other requirements or qualifications to become a law enforcement, corrections or peace officer at the state, national or international level. Students who are interested in pursuing such professions are encouraged to check with the applicable agencies for a list of requirements.
