WATERVILLE, MAINE, June 2018 — Thomas College President Laurie G. Lachance announces a $10,000 President’s Inaugural Scholarship to the first class of Master’s in Criminology students.

The one-year Master’s in Criminology is a unique program in the State of Maine and in the fields of criminal justice and criminology. There is still space to enroll.

Thomas College’s Master’s in Criminology offers classes Tuesday and Thursdays, 8 a.m. to noon, which allows you to complete your Master’s in 10 months – while you continue working. It is the only master’s program of its kind in Maine.

“We know that affordability is a very important component to furthering education, and we want to help make it easier for students dreams to come true. This one-time $10,000 scholarship will lower students’ tuition to $16,110,” said President Lachance.
