Admissions: Programs of Study

Criminal Justice

The Criminal Justice program provides a solid foundation for the growing number of careers for law enforcement, probation and parole, corrections, security services and criminal investigation for college graduates. Students select their course of study from academic courses coupled with an internship and an individualized research project for a sound and practical education.

Fifth-Year Master’s Degree Option

A special feature of the program is the optional five-year master's degree in Criminal Justice offered to qualified undergraduates. This arrangement permits students to complete a master's degree in one year, following completion of the four-year Marywood bachelor's degree program. A traditional master's degree in Criminal Justice is also available.
