The Criminology and Criminal Justice program from University of Missouri–St. Louis is based on evidence that candidates have achieved a high level of scholarship and proficiency in research. The proficiency of students and their ability to work independently are assessed through course grades, qualifying and comprehensive examinations, and successful defense of the dissertation.
The normal full-time course load for a regular semester is between six and nine hours. For an eight-week summer session, the maximum course load is six hours. Students admitted on a part-time basis should consult with the DGS for relevant conditions and requirements.
This programme may require students to demonstrate proficiency in English.
