(ONLINE PROGRAM)

The University of California Irvine has partnered with LASDU affiliates to offer a 5% tuition discount to this program.

 

The Master of Advanced Studies in criminology, law and society, an online degree program in the School of Social Ecology, placed second in the nation in U.S. News & World Report’s 2019 ranking of online criminal justice/criminology programs.

U.S. News judged 77 schools with online programs in five categories: engagement, faculty credentials and training, services and technology,expert opinion and student excellence, and UCI’s MAS program moved up to second this year, from third last year.

The program is comprised of world-class faculty members from the Department of Criminology, Law and Society. They include former presidents of the American Society of Criminology; former presidents of the Law and Society Association, the Society for the Study of Social Problems, and the American Psychology-Law Society and fellows of the American Academy of Political and Social Science.

The program consists of 52 units of course work which is completed sequentially in two years (6 quarters). In lieu of a thesis, students are required to take the course "Social Problems, Law and Policy" in the winter quarter of the second year of study, which also serves as a capstone, or summary, course in which a research paper is completed. A degree is granted upon completion of 13 courses. Commencement occurs once each year in June.

Though majority of the program is online, students have the option to take a course in residence on the UCI campus at the beginning of their course of study — "Introduction to Criminology, Law and Society." This accelerated 5-day introductory course is scheduled for Monday, August 19th-Friday, August 23rd, before the fall quarter begins. 


The University of California Irvine has partnered with LASDU affiliates to offer a 5% tuition discount to this program.

In order to be elgible for this discount, students must contact the MAS Assistant Director and demonstrate proof of employment with a public service agency affiliated with LASDU prior to registration and enrollment.
