The Master of Arts in Criminal Justice in the Department of Sociology & Criminology is a 36-hour online graduate program. Students complete 24 hours in Core classes and 12 hours of electives (may include 6 to 9 hours of thesis credit). An internship would be an elective for anyone without field experience. The M.A. in Criminal Justice does not require a thesis; however, students will complete a capstone course (CJG 609) in their second year (with at least 18 hours completed) with a grade of B or better. Students will be advised by the Criminal Justice Graduate Admissions Coordinator in planning a course of study. Students are expected to attend a 2-3 hour orientation at the beginning of the program at Meredith College unless an exception is approved by the Director of the program.
Curriculum requirements and course descriptions are subject to changes with each catalogue.
