Master of Arts in Management for Public Safety and Homeland Security Professionals ONLINE WITH WEEKEND RESIDENCIESPrerequisites Bachelor's degree in criminal justice or other social sciences de-gree required; relevant work experience preferred; computer skills adequate for handling the online portion of the program.Degree Requirements The MA program is a 33- to 36-credit-hour program with a required master's project. The program's blended learning format offers flexibility for working students. Courses are offered on a trimester basis with a required one-day, eight-hour weekend residence for each class at Pace's Pleasantville Campus. The remainder of the coursework is completed online. The program can be completed in two years and with just six on-campus weekends. The program begins with a mandatory four-hour orientation. Students then complete 15 credits in core course requirements before selecting 18-21 credits in elective courses. All students are required to develop a Master Project for each course. Students will be asked to identify a topic that makes a connection between their work and educational experiences and document this body of knowledge in their Master Project, which serves as an end product of their master's experience. Students will also be offered the option of completing a formal master's thesis testing a hypothesis of their choice. The master's thesis will require students to follow formal research methodologies to test their theories. Financial assistance through Pace's robust financial aid program can help offset the costs of graduate school through merit scholarships, federal loans, veterans scholarships and the Yellow Ribbon program, which provides financial support to qualified veterans. In addition, Pace offers a 50 percent tuition scholarship* to U.S. veterans who have served in Afghanistan or Iraq since September 11, 2001. *Not applicable to Yellow Ribbon benefit recipients.Master of Arts in Management for Public Safety and Homeland Security Professionals (33 - 36 credits total)Required Core Courses (15 credits) Orientation (4 hours)-mandatory 0CRJ 601 Introduction to Homeland Security 3CRJ 602 Public Sector Management 3CRJ 603 Strategic Planning and Budgeting 3CRJ 604 U.S. Constitution and Ethical Issues 3CRJ 605 Policy Analysis and Program Evaluation 3Additional/Elective Courses (18-21 credits)*CRJ 629 Comparative Governments 3CRJ 622 International Human Rights 3CRJ 630 Intelligence Gathering Strategies for Homeland Security 3CRJ 624 Technology and Critical Infrastructure Protection 3CRJ 625 Multidisciplinary Approaches to Homeland Security 3CRJ 626 Special Topics in Homeland Security 3CRJ 627 Psychology and Terrorism/Fear 3CRJ 628 Research Colloquium and Capstone Seminar 3Total Credits: 33-36* Students choosing to complete a master's thesis are required to complete only 33 credits.
