Analysis of Criminal Behavior Graduate Certificate

About the Program

The graduate certificate in Analysis of Criminal Behavior builds on the Crime, Law, and Justice specialization within the CECH School of Criminal Justice Master of Science program. Students are provided with the conceptual knowledge and analytical skills relevant to characterizing patterns of individual criminal behavior and responding to it.

Program Benefits

This certificate enhances students’ educational experiences by providing a better understanding of the origins and patterns of individual offending, focusing especially on emerging topics of importance like white collar crime and cybercrime. Crime analysis is an emerging subfield within corrections agencies that involves assessing individual behavior and offering empirically-based assessment as to the offender’s risks and needs. This requires a degree of basic conceptual knowledge of criminal behavior as well as some understanding of measurement and data analysis.

Accreditation

The University of Cincinnati and all regional campuses are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.
