Administration of Justice M.A.

The M.A. in Administration of Justice has been designed as a web-based degree program to accommodate the needs of Justice professionals for whom a two-year leave of absence from their profession is not feasible. Since relocation to the Fairbanks area is not necessary, the M.A. degree program has attracted justice professionals from throughout the country who have found the flexibility of a web-based format useful. The Justice discipline examines theoretical and applied concepts, and the M.A. in Administration of Justice reflects that dichotomy. Consequently, students explore theoretical models associated with different aspects of the criminal justice system, but also study the structure and administration of the criminal justice system.

Justice B.A.

The justice discipline represents a melding of theoretical and applied concepts, and the BA degree in justice, as well as the MA degree in administration of justice, reflects that dichotomy. Consequently, students explore theoretical models associated with different aspects of the criminal justice system, but also study the structure and administration of the criminal justice system. The applied science nature of the discipline results in graduates with a BA degree in justice being able to favorably compete for professional positions within various justice employment fields. This also creates opportunities for internships with various justice agencies for justice juniors and seniors
