Additional Program Customization Options

The expansive selection of electives offered within the UW-Platteville Master of Science in Criminal Justice (MSCJ) program allows graduate students to customize their programs to fit their career interests. Besides the “packaged” concentration areas offered, students can choose to build their own program of study with electives ranging in focus from systems and operations within the criminal justice system to social and psychological theory.

For example, students interested in social justice can take a blend of coursework that focuses on criminal justice systems, psychology and the impact of class and race within these systems.
