Within our M.A. in Criminal Justice, we offer three optional specialized tracks. Our Homeland Security track exposes students to core homeland security competencies in areas of intelligence analysis, strategic planning and collaborative partnerships with other entities necessary for comprehensive anti-terror strategies. You may also pursue the Intelligence Analyst Track that prepares students for positions that will allow them to research and provide their expertise in a more analytical way. The track in Leadership prepares you for executive roles within the field of criminal justice by focusing on the management of day-to-day operations within law enforcement and public agencies.
