Criminal Justice - BA/MA
High-achieving undergraduates will be invited by the criminal justice faculty to apply for the BA/MA five-year program. Students admitted to this program begin taking graduate courses along with their undergraduate curriculum in their last three undergraduate semesters. They then complete the remaining requirements of a master's in criminal justice in the subsequent year. Up to nine credits of graduate work may count for both the bachelor's and master's degree programs; these are used as criminal justice major electives in the undergraduate degree. Eligible students have a minimum 3.5 overall GPA and will have completed 83 credits of their overall program by the time they are admitted to this program in the spring of their junior year. Students must have completed the following courses to be considered for this program: CJ 1001, CJ 2401, CJ 2601, and CJ 2602.
Eligible students will receive notification at the end of their sophomore year, and applications will be accepted until September 30th of their junior year.
