Managers and supervisors in criminal justice professions are increasingly expected to have a greater understanding of forensic psychology research, theories, and practical uses.
To support this need, Meredith College has added a concentration in behavioral forensics to its Master of Arts in Criminal Justice program.
Launched in 2020, Meredith’s Master of Arts in Criminal Justice is an online graduate program. The behavioral forensics track adds nine additional hours or three classes to the 36 required for the M.A. in Criminal Justice.
The program is flexible, allowing students to pursue the program at the pace that works best for them.
Many of the courses are taught by practitioners in the field. Program Director Bianca Harris has more than 20 years of experience in criminal justice. She has extensive experience in criminal justice management, having served as warden of the North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women and district manager of the Division of Alcohol and Chemical Dependency unit of the state Department of Public Safety.
