*At this time, we are not accepting any new students for the Justice Leadership and Management program.*

The only program of its kind in the region, the University of Baltimore's Master of Professional Studies (M.P.S.) in Justice Leadership and Management is a specialized graduate degree for professionals in the criminal justice and security fields. The program is offered exclusively at the Universities at Shady Grove along Montgomery County's expanding "high-tech" corridor, highly diversified with advanced professional, research and tech services at its core. It's also close to the Maryland State Police headquarters, and numerous federal, state and local criminal justice agencies.

WHY STUDY JUSTICE LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT?

If you are a criminal justice professional working in a federal, state or local governmental organization or in a nonprofit agency, and are looking to advance in your field, then the M.P.S. program is for you. This 30-credit graduate program will prepare you for leadership and/or management positions in law enforcement, correctional organizations, courts, probation, parole, juvenile justice, victim services, corporate security, and other public sector criminal-justice-related agencies.
