About this course

The Master of Science in Criminal Justice program at Georgia College offers advanced education in the knowledge, skills, competencies, and perspectives required for effective, efficient, responsible, and humane criminal justice agency management. The program provides students with a strong generalist criminal justice education, and with opportunities for concentrated study in specific functional areas.

The MSCJ program is the only graduate criminal justice program in Middle Georgia. Courses are scheduled to fit into the work patters of most students so they are offered in the evening, usually meeting once a week for the term. You are able to begin the program at the start of any term during the academic year. Offered in Milledgeville and Macon, you normally can start and complete their program at either site. However, for several individual courses or to suit your scheduling needs, some travel between the two locations might be necessary

Entry Requirements


If you hold a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution and show promise of high quality work at the graduate level, you’ve completed the first steps. Criminal justice as a discipline is ideally suited for those with liberal arts backgrounds, but there is no specific undergraduate course of study required for admission. A complete set of application materials consists of: (1) the application forms; (2) official copies of undergraduate transcripts; (3) scores from the general portion of the GRE or the Miller Analogies Test.
