B.S. Criminal Justice - Psychology/M.S. Criminal Justice Administration

The concentration in psychology educates students in criminal justice on the interface between the two disciplines. The scope and sequence of seven psychology courses, in addition to the core criminal justice curriculum, provide students with a foundation in the interdisciplinary science of psychology, including the biological and psychosocial bases of behavior, learning, personality, and cognition.  Students gain competency in research methods in the social sciences and those who successfully complete the program will also satisfy the program outcomes for the MSCJA degree.
