The University of West Florida offers a program of study leading to the Master of Science in Criminal Justice. This program, taught by a dynamic faculty committed to high-quality graduate-level education, is designed to provide students with the knowledge and skills in theory, administration, research, and data analysis necessary for careers in the practice and administration of criminal justice, research, education, policy analysis, or to pursue doctoral-level studies.
The Master of Science in Criminal Justice at UWF is designed to fit the demands of contemporary students' diverse schedules. Classes are offered evenings, some weekends, and in online and blended delivery formats. Full time students can complete the degree in four semesters (one and a half years). Students can also complete the program entirely on line over an extended period of time.
In addition to the University graduate admission requirements described in the Graduate Admissions section of the catalog, the department bases decisions for regular admission on a holistic review of credentials in which the criteria listed in the admission checklist (see right-side column) are used to assess the potential success of each applicant.
