About

Stockton University offers a Master of Arts in Criminal Justice Program (MACJ) with a track in Forensic Psychology.  The best way to understand forensic psychology is to examine the coevolution of the criminal justice system and the field of psychology. Both were very different in the past than they are today. 

Overview

The Master of Arts in Criminal Justice (MACJ) Program at Stockton University provides a quality graduate program that promotes advanced inquiry and application of new knowledge and fosters advanced-level career opportunities. The program aims to serve criminal justice educational and research needs in the southern New Jersey area. 

Unlike other social science disciplines such as psychology and social work, there is no academic accreditation for programs in criminal justice. There is, however, optional certification. The Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS) offers certification for criminal justice and has developed approximately fifty standards as evidence of excellence in graduate criminal justice education. Stockton University's MA in Criminal Justice Program is the only graduate program in the tri-state area that has earned this certification. That means that we have provided evidence that we meet or exceed every single standard and that translates into an excellent education experience for our students.
