BS/MS Program


The BS/MS criminal justice degree option is for students already enrolled in Molloy's undergraduate program, so they may continue their studies here at the graduate level. Enrolled students will take two (2) criminal justice graduate courses - CRJ 501 and CRJ 502 - during their senior year. Upon the successful completion of the required 128 credits, students will be awarded the Bachelor of Science degree. After the graduate application process, students will enter the criminal justice graduate program. Once enrolled in the graduate program, students must take the remaining nine (9) required core credits, plus an additional 18 elective credits.


The criminal justice graduate classes are designed to conform to the Academy of Criminal Justice Sciences (ACJS). This is a society of criminal justice academicians and practitioners who serve as the certifying body for criminal justice institutions of higher learning in the United States. The Molloy College criminal justice graduate courses are developed utilizing specialized content area, in order to accommodate the broad scope of the criminal justice field.
