About

Stockton University offers a Master of Arts in Criminal Justice Program (MACJ) with a track in Homeland Security. The program is designed to offer students a broad and multidisciplinary perspective on the criminal justice system. 

Overview

The work of criminal justice practitioners is complex and requires knowledge of how and why people engage in crime as well as an understanding of the issues faced by practitioners in the criminal justice system. Students may concentrate their studies in Forensic Psychology, Homeland Security, Justice Studies, or Administration & Leadership.

Federal, state and local government agencies, as well as private firms, are involved in protecting the United States, its people, and resources from human-made or natural disaster. The curriculum for the Homeland Security Track involves an all-hazards perspective, meaning that the program involves discussion about issues regarding the prevention of and reaction to natural and human-made disasters, including terrorist attacks. The legal, moral and ethical issues pertaining to homeland security will be an important component of the curriculum, as will studies of agency participation and cooperation in planning for and responding to crisis.
