About

The Criminal Justice program of Valdosta State University is designed to broaden the perspectives of criminal justice practitioners, to equip practitioners with advanced knowledge and skills, and to prepare students with further graduate work and scholarship. Graduates are provided the necessary skills to succeed in the public and private sectors.

Overview

The Valdosta State Difference

The Criminal Justice program of Valdosta State University is also offered entirely online. Completion of 36 credits is required, six of which include a thesis. The degree can be completed in two years.

A central focus of the program is to demonstrate that the problems and issues our society faces with regard to crime and our reaction to crime must be situated within a larger cultural and structural context. Upon graduation students will be: conversant with the theoretical and legal principles in criminal justice; knowledgeable of the essential research contributions in the discipline; capable of quantitative and qualitative research and data analysis in criminal justice; and competent to assume leadership, policymaking, research, and instructional responsibilities in criminal justice.

What you'll learn

The Master’s Degree is focused on integrating criminal justice theory with criminal justice practice. Course work in the MS program includes: administration and management; ethics and civil liability; scientific criminal justice research methods; statistical analysis; advanced criminological theories; criminal law and procedure; criminal justice planning and policy evaluation; advance crime prevention; comparative criminal justice; seminar in law enforcement; forensic investigation; criminal behavior and personality; juvenile justice; seminar in criminal victimization; and directed study, to mention a few. Graduates with the degree are prepared to advance their professional careers and/or to pursue a doctoral degree.
