The Adler School of Professional Psychology is currently seeking a full-time core faculty member to teach courses in our on-line MA in Criminology Program. The position involves curriculum development, teaching courses on-line and mentoring students.
The Master of Arts in Criminology (On-Line Program): The program is specifically designed to train practitioners to address current challenges facing the criminal justice system, through a blend of coursework that focuses on the intersection of criminology, psychology and social justice. This unique approach prepares students to truly make a difference through examining the causes and consequences of criminal behavior, understanding the intricacies of modern day criminal justice systems, and applying theoretical skills and empirical data to address those challenges.
