The graduate certificate program in criminal justice management teaches specific skills to professionals in this field. Courses emphasize the application of modern management principles and practices to the field of criminal justice. The following four courses (12 credits), or substitutions approved by the advisor, are required for completion of this certificate.


At the University of New Haven, we provide world-class career preparation in all of our programs, but our overarching goal is to prepare students to lead meaningful lives.

Through our courses in the arts, humanities, and sciences we cultivate our students’ humanity; and by integrating experiential learning in our academic programs – through such areas of emphasis as community service, internships, student-faculty research, and student self-governance – we prepare our students for leadership in their careers and as members of a democratic society.

The technological and economic complexity, as well as the great cultural diversity of the world in which we live and work, will require our graduates to be exceptionally flexible, compassionate, and tolerant human beings.  I hope the UNH experience will lead our students and alumni to measure their personal success not just by the dollars they earn but primarily by the positive impact they will have on the lives of others.  For this reason, I encourage students – regardless of their major – to explore UNH for courses that will enrich their sense of social justice and societal responsibility.
