About this course

Grand Valley State University's Master of Science (M.S.) in Criminal Justice is offered through the School of Criminal Justice in the College of Community and Public Service. The program prepares graduate students to become highly capable additions to the justice system, and is designed to prepare those students who are planning to pursue doctoral degrees.

The Master of Criminal Justice degree program includes 18 hours of required courses, 15-18 hours of guided electives, and an option to choose between a comprehensive exam and a six-hour thesis requirement. In addition, those without work experience in criminal justice or private security are strongly encouraged to take a three-hour graduate internship course.
