The program offers three areas of concentration:
The Justice Management Program provides a large selection of courses that allows students to create a program of study unique to their interests and professional needs. Special topic courses include a wide variety of study areas and to address current trends in justice administration.
Accordingly, students are advised individually about courses that are most appropriate given their interests and goals. Advising is done in part by our online system that provides students with an up-to-the-minute progress report showing what courses they have taken to fulfill degree requirements, and in part by JM administrators who monitor each student’s progress, suggesting recommended courses to take in future semesters. Recommended courses are added to a student’s progress report as “Advised.” All students must take a certain number of courses from specified categories to insure that they gain a well-rounded foundation in the study of justice, social research design, and management.
The example program tracks listed below can be completed entirely online. There are many variations possible. Also, for students who live in the Reno area, there are a number of on-campus courses offered by other departments (such as Criminal Justice, Sociology, Human Development & Family Studies, Communication Studies, and more) that are accepted in fulfillment of MJM degree requirements. Students who prefer not to concentrate on just one area of emphasis may put together a program of study that spans all areas.
All students must take a minimum of 32 credits (non-thesis) or 30 credits (thesis option) from:
Except for the two required courses from “Core Requirements” students may select courses from the other categories to put together a custom-designed program of study that would correspond to an area of emphasis. Courses taken beyond the minimum for the “Additional Foundation” and “Essentials” categories may be taken as Elective courses.
