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. Research the education requirements for specific law and justice field careers at our law and justice career center page.

Those with a master’s degree in the law and justice fields can expect to find employment in both the private and public sectors, most often with local or state government agencies.  An individual with a master’s degree can expect to earn significantly more than an individual with an associate’s or bachelor’s degree in the same field.
