Applications are now being accepted for the September 9, 2013 intake!
The graduate certificate in Tactical Criminal Analysis is a 15 credit program (five 3-credit courses delivered online) which will provide an advanced level theoretical and applied framework for the study of criminal intelligence and analysis, and its application in a wide variety of law enforcement contexts.
The program is designed to provide specialized theoretical foundation and applied skills to function successfully as an analyst.
