Trine adds law concentration to MS program

March 05, 2013

ANGOLA, Ind. – Trine University is adding a fourth option for those earning a Master of Science with a major in Criminal Justice (MSCJ), and that is a concentration in law. The new concentration will debut this summer.

The law concentration is designed for individuals interested in working as leaders in local, state and federal government agencies, nonprofit organizations and corporate settings, among others, where an in-depth understanding of the law is essential. The law concentration consists of five classes that students will take upon completion of the initial seven core classes of the program.

Trine's MSCJ program is an accelerated, one-year program consisting of two courses per eight-week term. It's designed to provide an education for professionals in the private and public sectors employed in the areas of institutional and community corrections, law enforcement, social work, public administration, emergency management, forensic psychology and related fields. Courses are available online or on campuses at Indiana regional education centers in Angola, Columbus, Fort Wayne, Indianapolis, Logansport, Mishawaka, Schererville and Warsaw, and in Sturgis, Mich., as well as in Peoria, Ariz. Online courses are available at the Trine Virtual Campus.

The MSCJ program consists of 12 courses (36 credits) that must be taken in sequence. In addition to the law concentration, other available concentrations are public administration, emergency management and forensic psychology.
