MS Criminal Justice Administration Curriculum
The Hilbert College graduate degree in criminal justice administration consists of 36 credit hours. The mode of study is based on an accelerated cohort model. Students accepted into the program will start in August or February and will follow through the program, taking one new course every 5 weeks. The cohort model encourages the development of life long connections and colleagues in the field as students work on group projects, discuss policy and move through the eighteen month program.
Hilbert offers the only accelerated cohort model of graduate, criminal justice study in western New York. With the city of Buffalo 10 minutes away, we expect our graduates to be highly marketable within Erie County and throughout the United States.
