Seattle University MA in Criminal Justice Info Session

Tuesday, January 27, 2015 - 12:00pm

No RSVP Required.

The Master of Arts in Criminal Justice (MACJ) at Seattle University is an interdisciplinary program that offers a comprehensive, rigorous, analytic study of crime and the societal responses to it. Our focus is on the application of theory and research methods in the development of initiatives, policies, and practice. In addition, we give special emphasis to criminal justice ethics, issues of diversity in criminal justice, critical thinking, and leadership. Our students go on to successful careers in all sectors of the criminal justice system, including law enforcement, courts, corrections, social service, policy, and research. The MACJ program is one of only eight programs certified by the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences!

Degrees Offered:

  • MACJ (no specialization)
  • MACJ (Investigative Criminology specialization)
  • MACJ (Victimology specialization)
  • MACJ (Research & Evaluation specialization)
  • MACJ/JD (joint MACJ degree and law degree)

We also now offer a fully online one-year Crime Analysis Certificate Program (CACP) that trains students to be crime analysts. Crime analysts typically perform detailed statistical analyses of crime data, prepare periodic reports on criminal activity and trends, identify emerging crime patterns, and communicate their findings to a variety of internal and external audiences.

If you are interested in learning more about these programs, please attend this session. For additional information, feel free check out our website ( or to contact Dr. Elaine Gunnison, Graduate Director at
