The Master of Science in Criminal Justice Administration (MSCJA) degree program consists of a rigorous graduate-level curriculum that integrates the overlapping skills of public and private sector law enforcement and corporate risk practitioners into a common framework. This framework makes it possible for those practitioners to also obtain the specialized education and skills in their particular sub-area(s) of interest. Moreover, this program consciously and purposefully embeds core Jesuit concepts- spreading social justice into both the traditional venues of criminal justice and into a domain that is not frequently thought of as part of the social justice paradigm- private sector risk mitigation.
