The 12-credits graduate level certificate in criminal justice and criminology consists of the same four courses used in the master of public administration degree with a criminal justice and criminology concentration.

These courses may be taken in any order:

  • CJC 650: Criminal Justice Administration (3 credits)
  • CJC 651: Interpersonal Relations in Criminal Justice (3 credits)
  • CJC 652: Philosophical Aspects of Criminal Justice Practice (3 credits)
  • CJC 690: Independent Study (3 credits)

Your independent study is supervised by a criminal justice graduate faculty member and gives you the opportunity to apply your knowledge to specific issues, such as an issue that is relevant to the agency where you are employed.

These courses are suitable as electives if you are seeking elective courses outside their home disciplines, such as sociology.
