This joint-degree program is a collaborative effort between the School of Criminal Justice and the following undergraduate units of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey: Newark College of Arts and Sciences, University College-Newark, Camden College of Arts and Sciences, University College-Camden, and the School of Arts and Sciences in New Brunswick (bachelor of arts or bachelor of science/master of arts degrees [B.A. or B.S./M.A.] for all colleges). The School of Criminal Justice participates in a similar program with such schools as the Richard Stockton College of New Jersey and the College of New Jersey. Students in the program enroll during their initial three years in one of the participating undergraduate colleges and during their last one and one-half years at the School of Criminal Justice.
The program is designed to accelerate the advancement of qualified students into criminal justice careers through programs that combine a liberal arts education with a professional course of study. The program heightens the awareness of more mature students to the career potential of a liberal arts background and improves the quality of criminal justice personnel by ensuring the broad perspectives acquired through a liberal arts education.
