Criminal Justice Education

The Methodist University Master of Justice Administration (MJA) is currently on hiatus status. The program is not accepting new student admissions.


The MJA Program also offers a Graduate Certificate in Criminal Justice Education.  The accrediting body for colleges and universities in the Southeastern United States, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), requires the following to teach in an undergraduate criminal justice program at a 2-year community college and 4-year college/university:  1) a master’s degree in criminal justice or 2) a master’s degree with 18 credit hours in criminal justice coursework.  The Certificate in Criminal Justice Education was designed to allow those holding a current master’s degree in a field other than criminal justice, to obtain the 18 credit hours necessary to teach in a criminal justice undergraduate program at the community college or university level.  To obtain a certificate, a student must complete 9 credit hours of required MJA courses and 9 hours of electives from a list of approved MJA courses for a total of 18 credit hours.  Requirements for Certificate in Criminal Justice Education can be found in the graduate catalogue.
