Combined Degree Program: B.A. in Criminal Justice/M.A. in Justice Administration and Public Service

The Combined B.A. in Criminal Justice to M.A. in Justice Administration and Public Service Degree Program enables highly motivated undergraduate students to transition into the graduate Justice Administration and Public Service program even while still completing the College's baccalaureate program. The Program requires candidates to complete as prerequisites, three of the four undergraduate courses listed below, as well as a series of selected graduate-level courses. To be eligible for the Combined Baccalaureate to Master's Degree Program, students must achieve a 3.0 or higher grade point average.

Qualified students, after successfully completing their junior year, may apply to the Combined Degree Program. Once accepted, students take up to four designated graduate courses (12 credits), which can be applied as free electives toward the completion of their undergraduate program and/or toward the 30-credit requirement for the Master's Degree in Justice Administration and Public Service. Combined degree students must continue in the master's program without interruption until completion or risk being dropped. Combined degree students must apply and be granted a leave of absence in order to interrupt their studies.
