UH-Downtown offers six master's degree programs to complement its most popular undergraduate programs: the Master of Arts in Teaching, the Master of Science in Criminal Justice and the Master of Science in Security Management, the Master of Science in Professional Writing and Technical Communications, the Master of Arts in Non-Profit Management, and the Master of Business Adminstration.


Housed in the Department of Criminal Justice, the Master of Science in Criminal Justice is designed to further knowledge, develop leadership and elevate professional skills for individuals interested in areas related to criminological theory, criminal justice administration and program evaluation. 


The Master of Security Management was developed in response to requests from corporate security companies who want trained security professionals for management roles.


The Master of Science in Technical Communication (MSTC), housed in the Department of English, provides graduates with writing, design, and management skills based on rhetorical principles. The MSTC curriculum, along with the guidance of skilled and experienced Professional Writing faculty, will prepare graduates to lead in diverse professions.


The Master of Arts in Teaching offers unique opportunities to educators who wish to enhance their classroom-based teaching skills and techniques, rather than focusing solely on theory. The program is housed in the Department of Urban Education.

The Master of Business Adminstration (MBA) program housed in the College of Business at UHD was designed specifically for the “working-professional”. Working professionals are motivated people who want to continue working in their full-time professional position while also pursuing graduate education. The MBA program at UHD is structured so that individuals spend just two evenings a week at UHD while in graduate study.


The Master of Arts in Non-Profit Management (MANPM) program is housed in the Department of Social Sciences. It is designed to prepare recent college graduates as well as mid- and senior-level administrators for the management and leadership of non-profit organizations of all types.
