Career and Academic Opportunities

The Double Owl Pathway in BS- Forensic Chem and MSCJ is an ideal program for students desiring to expand
their career and academic opportunities in the field. The Pathway provides a focused and interactive educational
experience designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills in criminal justice administration,
management, as well as related areas. The Pathway is designed so that students can complete both the B.S. and
M.S. degrees in either 5 or 5½ years. Students who have completed the Master of Science in Criminal Justice
have gone onto careers in such areas as state and federal criminal investigations; private consulting; police
cybercrime; and data/research analysis. In addition to having obtained managerial, director and/or senior-level
positions in these career areas, our graduates have been accepted into PhD programs in criminal justice,
criminology and related fields at larger, research-intensive universities.
