Go Beyond Street Smarts
Whether you are a law enforcement professional, or work in private security, corrections, juvenile justice or other community service work, you have had to learn to face the challenge of social problems on a daily basis. While the protocols of professional practice prepare you for many standard situations, and "street smarts" help you cope with the daily challenges of the job, the complexities of the work go beyond that training and those basic survival skills.
Curry College's 21-month Master of Arts in Criminal Justice Program begins with theory and integrates that with the knowledge of experience from the "street" to take your applied skills to a new level of excellence. By mixing theory with practice, you'll refine and advance your reflective thinking capabilities and become more adept at problem solving, mentoring, and management. A focus on reflective practice is the Curry College difference.
The goal of Curry College's Master of Arts in Criminal Justice Program is to help empower you to meet the challenges of law enforcement and community service in the 21st Century. The breadth of subject matter is comprehensive - you will study trends as well as hone your leadership skills - but focuses on four specific areas:
- Public Administration
- Ethical Leadership
- Problem Solving
Curry College's Master of Arts in Criminal Justice Program will help you take your street smarts to a level of excellence that will not only advance your career, but help you to better serve your community.
