Program Description:

The Master of Science degree in Criminal Justice requires 36 credit hours (12 courses). All students entering the program are required to complete five courses (15 credits) of core requirements, four electives (12 credits) in criminal justice, and three courses (9 credits) in general electives. The MSCJ program is available at University Park campus and fully online. The Department of Criminal Justice and the Department of Public Administration have a joint degree program culminating in both a Master of Science in Criminal Justice (MSCJ) and a Master of Public Administration (MPA). The joint degree program prepares graduate students for overlapping careers in criminal justice and public management. It is intended to prepare students for positions in public, private, and nonprofit organizations that require both criminal justice and management knowledge. Under the joint degree program, a student can obtain both degrees in significantly less time than it would take to obtain both degrees if independently. The faculties of the College of Law and the Department of Criminal Justice have approved a joint degree program culminating in both a Juris Doctor degree (JD), awarded by the College of Law, and a Master of Science in Criminal Justice degree (MSCJ), awarded by the Department of Criminal Justice. Under this joint degree program, a student can obtain the degrees in significantly less time than it would take to obtain both degrees if pursued consecutively.
