Who This MSCJ Concentration is For

This concentration is developed for both experienced and novice public safety practitioners who are moving through the promotional hierarchy within their public safety agency. However, we do not require a minimum amount of full-time work experience to be accepted into this concentration. This program is also developed and designed for individuals who are motivated or aspire to work in public safety.

We prefer working professionals whose official transcripts show a 3.0+ GPA in their last 60 credits of bachelor degree study. However, the Graduate Admissions Committee may provisionally admit students who earned less than a 3.0 as undergraduates after requesting additional documents and letters of recommendation from current or former professors and employers.
