About

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. 

Overview

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.
