North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University just received UNC System approval to launch new Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy programs in Criminal Justice. "Both graduate degree programs will offer parallel on-campus and online course delivery catering to a wider population, including post-traditional students, law enforcement officers, military personnel and businesspeople who work full time. The university plans to begin accepting students into the programs in Fall 2024." N.C. A&T is an R2 land-grant public HBCU. The PhD will be its first doctorate.
