Most students in the program are professionals in the criminal justice field working toward their degree on a part-time basis. Over the past few years there have been an increasing number of students entering the program on a full-time basis immediately after their undergraduate studies. The program can be completed in one to three years, depending on the number of classes taken per semester.
Students with a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution may apply for admission.
