Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Public Affairs


Students can earn the Crime Analysis graduate certificate by successfully completing 15 credit hours of approved coursework. Anyone who has completed a bachelor’s degree from an accredited university is eligible to enroll in the program.

The certificate emphasizes Criminal Justice and Criminology-related subjects, but the analytic skills learned in the certificate training can be easily transferred to non-criminal justice and criminology fields.

With the Crime Analysis certificate, students will set themselves apart from other applicants in today’s competitive job market by mastering analytical skills. Courses will be taught by current and former analysts (some of whom are current UCD faculty), while also gaining important theoretical and methodological knowledge from all UCD professors.

In addition to the stand-alone graduate certificate, students may also choose to complete a concentration in Crime Analysis as part of the Criminal Justice MCJ. Students interested in the Crime Analysis concentration must apply and enroll in the MCJ program within the School of Public Affairs (SPA) and must adhere to all master degree program requirements.
