We believe our focus on the issues that face urban communities is our key differentiating point. Whether it is the issues and opportunities facing entrepreneurs in densely populated areas or safety and human service issues facing urban communities, the King Graduate School has a committed focus on these areas.
Both our MBA and M.S. in Criminal Justice can be completed in four semesters. Because Monroe offers students the opportunity to take three complete semesters each year, students can complete their Master’s degree program in 16 months.
Because many of our graduate students are working full time, many need the flexibility of an online degree program. You can complete either your MBA or MS in Criminal Justice completely online through Monroe Online. And because our online programs are taught by the same on-campus professors and our academic calendars are completely aligned, students have the option of switching between on campus and online classes as the need arises.
No. The MS in Criminal Justice also appeals to students that are interested in Human Services. In fact, two of the three available concentrations in this program are Human Services and Community Development.
