Course of Study

The Kennesaw State Master of Science in Criminal Justice program (MSCJ) has 2 options, thesis (33 credit hours) and non-thesis (36 credit hours), including 6 core courses, elective courses (thesis 3 courses, non-thesis 5 courses) and either thesis or demonstration project.

MSCJ students can take degree-counting courses in face-to-face (f2f) format; alternating modality format (i.e., both f2f and online courses); and a fully online format (i.e., student takes 100% of degree courses online).

For a sample/ draft 2-year MSCJ class schedule that alternates both online and F2F courses (note: required & elective classes are included), please see the sample schedule for alternating modalities.

For more information on specific classes, see our M.S. in Criminal Justice degree information in the KSU Graduate Catalog.
