Dual Master of Public Administration + Master of Science in Criminal Justice

The School of Public Administration and Department of Criminal Justice offer a 51-credit-hour dual degree program in which students earn both a Master of Public Administration and Master of Science in Criminal Justice.

The M.P.A. + M.S.CJ program prepares graduates for careers in public, nonprofit and private organizations that require criminal justice, finance, public administration and management knowledge. The program also prepares 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 online (see UCF Online). However, many face-to-face courses are available and offered in the evening.

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.
