B.S. Criminal Justice - National/Corporate Security/M.S. Criminal Justice Administration

After 9/11, security professionals became important to a variety of organizations and businesses.  They are employed by organizations or government to protect the property, personnel, information, and economic assets from man-made and natural disasters and ensure business continuity. It is important for security professionals to learn about technical and supervisory responsibilities. They protect the workplace from theft, workplace violence, crime, and terrorism. Security management professionals may perform security risk assessments, conduct investigations, design crime prevention programs and security systems, create, implement and manage loss prevention programs, protect high-risk personnel, devise and implement disaster recovery plans and business continuity plans. Students in the national/corporate security concentration will study security management concepts through a series of seven classes in addition to the core criminal justice curriculum.

Students will also meet the program outcomes for the MSCJA degree.
