Program Description

The Graduate Certificate in Crime Analysis provides students with the essential skills needed by law enforcement agencies to meet the new demands for sophisticated crime analysis and mapping products.

The Graduate Certificate in Crime Analysis provides information for data-driven management, investigative support, and general crime analysis. The certificate addresses the needs of traditional criminal justice graduate students and non-traditional criminal justice practitioners. Theoretical aspects of crime pattern analysis are combined with practical applications to understand the development of data-driven crime prevention strategies. Crime pattern recognition and examination are emphasized.

Students learn to synthesize theory and application in order to produce the knowledge base necessary to fully utilize available technologies to develop and perform complex crime analysis and mapping; perform advanced spatial analyses of crime, and understand the essentials of creating customized crime analysis and mapping applications that are agency-specific.
