Criminology – the study of crime with a view to understanding its causes and preventing future crimes – is a broad field that combines aspects of the criminal justice system, the legal system, and the behavioral sciences. At criminology schools in Kansas, a degree in criminology can include many things, including conflict management. A master’s degree in conflict management can help students refine their negotiation skills and gain insight as to why conflicts arise. Classes at the master’s degree level include communication, conflict management, ethics, dispute resolution, law, psychology, and inquiry methods. Like other criminology-related careers, it requires a blended study course of law, psychology, and behavioral and social science.
At Kaplan University, we offer over 180 degree and certificate programs.
