North Carolina A&T State University to Debut New Graduate Programs in Criminal Justice

North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University’s College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences will soon be home to new criminal justice master’s and doctoral degree programs. The university plans to begin accepting students into the programs in Fall 2024.

N.C. A&T’s criminal justice master’s and doctoral programs are designed to provide high-quality graduate education and training in criminal justice with the four areas of specialization: investigative science, digital forensics, research methodology, and social justice. These programs will emphasize an interdisciplinary approach to academics, research, professional development, and leadership.

“Our M.S. and Ph.D. programs in criminal justice mark a significant milestone at A&T and for the UNC system,” said Frances Ward-Johnson, dean of the university’s College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences. “The Ph.D. will be the first in criminal justice in North Carolina and will be first doctoral program in the college. The considerable effort invested in developing and navigating these proposals expands our reach to diverse student populations across disciplines and reinforces our commitment to delivering exceptional graduate education and training in the field of criminal justice.”
