Accelerated Bachelor of Arts/Master of Criminal Justice
Accelerated Bachelor's/Master's in Criminal Justice
The School of Public Affairs offers a unique opportunity for highly qualified undergraduate criminal justice students. The Accelerated Master's Program (AMP) is designed to allow students to work concurrently toward the Bachelor of Arts in Criminal Justice (BACJ) and the Master of Criminal Justice (MCJ). The program allows qualified undergraduate students to start on their MCJ degree while simultaneously completing their BACJ degree. Graduate credit hours earned while enrolled in the BA/MCJ program can be counted toward both the Bachelor of Arts and Master of Criminal Justice degrees.
Qualified students can complete up to nine credits of graduate-level criminal justice courses that are eligible to double count toward both their BA and MCJ degrees. This will allow students to complete the MCJ degree on an accelerated timeframe. Interested students should meet with their undergraduate academic advisor, as well as the Master of Criminal Justice program director, Dr. Jon Caudill, before completing the Intent Form.
