students in class

At St. Ambrose, you don’t just get a degree; you acquire an entire support system.

Because our students come from diverse backgrounds, ages, experiences, locations. and cultures, everyone has something to offer in classroom discussions. Most master of criminal justice classes are a mix of students who have just finished their undergraduate degrees and are working professionals. Many have law enforcement and substance-abuse counseling backgrounds. The geographic mix includes students who have lived around the world, though most have ties to the Midwest region.

Students enjoy lots of contact with faculty, and fellow students and sustain their relationships long after graduation. The student network introduces Master of Criminal Justice graduates to fellow alumni in law enforcement and governmental departments. They exchange job leads, career-building contacts, and help each other get a foot in the door with employers.
