Criminal justice and public administration are closely linked fields, making it possible to offer an education that maintains the integrity and content of both degree programs in less class time.

Dual -mastersThe School of Public Administration and Department of Criminal Justice are pleased to announce a new 51-credit-hour dual degree program in which students earn both a Master of Public Administration and Master of Science in Criminal Justice.

The new M.P.A. + M.S.CJ Dual Degree Program is the first interdisciplinary dual degree program at UCF.

The M.P.A. + M.S.CJ. program will prepare graduates for careers in public, nonprofit and private organizations that require criminal justice, finance, public administration and management knowledge. The program also will prepare individuals for leadership or research careers in criminal justice, social service, nonprofit and public agencies.

The program is designed for working professionals. Students may complete the M.P.A. + M.S.CJ. program completely online (see UCF Online). However, many face-to-face courses are available and offered in the evening.

View the M.P.A. + M.S.CJ program description in the 2016-17 UCF Graduate Catalog.
