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.
