The Master of Science in Criminal Justice is a 30-credit master’s degree program designed for military police personnel from all uniformed branches who have successfully completed the U.S. Army Military Police School Career Captain’s Course (MPCCC).  The MSCJ builds on the training and experience of military police personnel by providing graduate-level coursework that focuses on international law enforcement and the challenges of working with non-U.S. military and civilian criminal justice agencies and organizations.  Graduates of the program are better equipped to carry out the changing mission of U.S. military police and to work collaboratively with foreign military and law enforcement personnel on transnational crime issues.
