The Criminal Justice Studies Program offers an interdiscipinary academic program of study. Core and elective courses are taught by faculty in units across campus, particularly those that focus on social science. Required courses, including those associated with internship supervision, are taught by faculty in Political Science and Sociology. The Program prepares students for graduate school in criminology, criminal justice, other social science disciplines, and other related professional degree programs, such as law, social work, and public administration. Alumni have gone on to positions in law enforcement, corrections, probation, juvenile justice, corporate security, social services, judicial administration, and other government agencies, including military service.

The primary reference for all academic requirements and coursework questions is the UGA Bulletin, where you can get program-specific information.

The university also maintains an archive of course syllabi which can be found at https://syllabus.uga.edu/Browse.aspx. Please note that these are final copies of syllabi that reflect what was covered in a class.

Provisional syllabi of what a professor intends to cover in the semester can often be found on the respective departmental web-sites or the professor's homepage.
