Law & Justice Master's Degrees

A master’s degree in law and justice is designed to provide students with a more in-depth understanding of the issues and practices in this field to advance their careers. Professionals working within the legal system may undertake this type of program to specialize in a particular aspect of the justice process. A master’s degree in law and justice is likely to include courses that focus on research and analysis skills along with courses to develop managerial skills. Capella University offers a master’s level program in public safety/criminal justice. Colorado Technical University Online also offers a master’s degree program with a concentration in criminal justice that is intended to address the issues relevant to administrative roles in this field.

A master’s degree in law and justice is best suited for professionals already working in this field who are looking to take on more responsibilities in terms of management and policy decisions.
