Program Description:

The MASTER OF SCIENCE (M.S.) degree represents a broad range of study designed to meet the academic needs of both pre-professional students and those already employed in the wide range of agencies, which make up the criminal justice and juvenile justice systems. The master's program focuses on the preparation of criminal justice professionals with advanced competencies in their respective specialties and areas of interest and emphasizes excellence in practice, problem-solving, critical thinking, inquiry, and leadership. The Board of Regents of the University System of Georgia granted approval to the Georgia State University Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology to offer a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree. The program is a response to two areas of societal need: demand for Ph.D. prepared individuals to teach in the expanding number of criminal justice degree programs offered in higher education and the need to have doctoral trained researchers available to study different issues related to criminal justice and crime control
