Criminal Justice

Graduate Program

The Department of Criminal Justice Administration offers a Master of Criminal Justice (M.C.J.) degree in cooperation with Tennessee State University. A minor in Criminal Justice at the Graduate Level is also offered at MTSU. To be considered for Fall admission, an applicant's materials must be received by June 15; for Spring admission, November 1; and for Summer admission, April 15.

A graduate student may not enroll in more than 12 total hours in any given semester. This limitation applies to Criminal Justice graduate students who may be simultaneously enrolled at both TSU and MTSU. Any student exceeding the hours-per-semester limit will be dropped from a course or courses to the twelve-hour level. A student may, on rare occasions, be given permission for an overload, but the proper overload form must be executed before courses begin and under no circumstances will the overload exceed three hours or a total of 15 hours.
