Of all the colleges in Mississippi, few have an administration of justice program as impressive as Mississippi College’s, which covers everything from criminal justice to homeland security to loss prevention/security management studies. Students can complete this degree in one of two ways: the 30-hour Plan A (without teacher certification) or the 36-hour Plan B (with teacher certification). Both plans require coursework in history, political science or administration of justice and an oral and written exam. You can also choose to earn a 21-hour graduate certificate in homeland security or loss prevention/security management.
If you’re trying to decide which of these graduate options is right for you – a Master of Social Science degree or a certification – your advisor and the rest of the caring faculty at Mississippi College are waiting to help you decide.
