The Justice Studies Master of Arts degree program from University of New Hampshire offers you a challenging and hands-on environment to prepare for your dream career advancing justice. You will develop in three areas: philosophical and theoretical understandings of justice, knowledge of the inner-workings and realities of laws and justice systems, and skills related to implementation of justice.


Pursuing a master’s in Justice Studies at University of New Hampshire allows you to delve deeply into law, crime, courts, corrections, policing, drugs, terrorism, homeland security, immigration, forensics, sexual violence, juvenile justice and more. Boost your earning potential and be more employable when you transition into the workforce.

At UNH, we offer masters students unique and inspiring opportunities including working alongside experienced scholars and practitioners. Research centers include the Crimes against Children Research Center, focused on childhood victimization, and the Prevention Innovations Research Center, focused on sexual and interpersonal violence prevention. 

You will develop advanced theoretical and research skills to prepare for the workplace. Paid work experiences allow you to engage with justice studies faculty and staff. You will complete a group project for a community partner (e.g., N.H. Attorney General’s office, Strafford County Community Corrections, Durham Police Department, etc.), and either an internship with a related culminating project or a master’s thesis.
