Dual Juris Doctor - Master of Criminal Justice (J.D./MCJ)

Dual J.D./MCJ Degree Program

This concurrent degree program allows matriculated students to complete the 90-hour Juris Doctor (J.D.) and the 36-hour Master of Science in Criminal Justice (MCJ) in an accelerated period of study. Interested law students may obtain a Master’s in Criminal Justice degree by taking 24 credit hours of MCJ courses and transferring 12 hours of law school credit. Reciprocally, the School of Law accepts 6 hours of MCJ course work toward the J.D. graduate degree. The accumulative 18 hours of academic credit reduces the total number of credit hours for students seeking the dual degree from 126 to 108 credit hours.
