Help make a safer, more secure world
No matter who you are when you begin UB’s Criminal Justice and Human Security (M.A.) degree program, upon graduation, you will be a well-prepared graduate ready to work in the area of criminal justice, international security, defense, intelligence, and transnational crime prevention or deterrence anywhere in the world.
This program is an excellent choice for domestic and international students looking to continue their education in criminal justice and human security; law enforcement employees—from local police to international officers, seeking to gain further expertise in the field; as well as military personnel looking to enter security at the civilian level. Students interested in pursuing positions in federal organizations, such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation, or in state or local criminal justice agencies that have an international focus will also benefit from completing this program. The program also provides a solid foundation for students looking to pursue advanced study in law or doctoral-level study of criminal justice upon graduation.
