Criminology Master’s Degree Now Offered on Line

Starting in September, students will have the opportunity to complete an IUP master’s degree in Criminology entirely on line. This program is the university’s second on-line graduate program.

“We’ve worked to develop a program that not only meets the academic standards required to prepare students for administrative and management positions in the criminal justice system and related fields but meets the needs of nontraditional students with nontraditional schedules,” Jamie Martin, professor of Criminology and coordinator of the master’s program, said. “The on-line program also offers an opportunity for students throughout the nation and world to complete their degree work without the necessity of travel to IUP. While most positions in the criminal justice field do not require a master’s degree for employment, a master’s degree enhances promotion opportunities and in some cases is even required for promotion.”

Students will take courses in a cohort of twenty-five students, meaning that the students complete coursework as a group. Coursework will include two courses per term for five semesters.
