1 1 MEMORANDUM TO: Educational Policies and Planning Committee FROM: Dr. William P. Bloss Chair, Department of Criminal Justice SUBJECT: Proposed Graduate Certificate in Criminal Justice Education DATE: April 1, 2014 The Department of Criminal Justice, College of Human Ecology, proposes to establish a new Graduate Certificate in Criminal Justice Education. It would enable interested students to obtain a post-baccalaureate credential which will qualify them for a college-level instructor position. Thus, the two-prong aim of the certificate is to first insure that the student has a sufficient competency in foundational and contemporary subject matter in the discipline; and second, prepare the student to effectively deliver criminal justice instructional material. An evaluation of applicant statements of purpose and Master of Science in Criminal Justice (MSCJ) retention data showed that a subgroup of students entered the MSCJ graduate program for the sole purpose of completing 18 semester hours of graduate coursework to become credentialed to teach criminal justice at the college level. Hence, these students withdrew from the MSCJ program once the 18 semester hours were completed, which has an adverse impact on retention and graduation rates in the program. After analyzing these data and conversing with students interested in obtaining the credential, it became apparent that the MSCJ program should provide students with a certificate opportunity to meet the demand without compelling them to become admitted into the 36 semester hour Master s degree program. Since none of the UNC constituent institutions offers this certificate option, we seek to fill that void by creating an avenue for interested students to obtain a credential necessary to teach criminal justice courses in some higher education institutions. Together, the core and elective courses provide the subject matter content and instructional delivery familiarity needed. The required core courses (9 semester hours) will insure mastery of essential criminal justice content and acquaint the student with instructional best practices. The remaining 9 semester hours of elective courses, as approved by the advisor, enables the student to tailor his/her coursework to individual interests and needs. With the exception of the new course, JUST 6002 Seminar in Criminal Justice Education, all courses needed to satisfy the certificate requirement are available in the current MSCJ course inventory. Since to obtain the credential all of the graduate coursework must be in the teaching field (i.e., criminal justice), other units or disciplines would not be participating in the certificate program. MEMORANDUM TO: FROM: Graduate Curriculum Committee Dr. William P. Bloss Chair, Department of Criminal Justice

2 2 SUBJECT: Application for New Certificate: Certificate in Criminal Justice Education DATE: February 19, 2014 The Department of Criminal Justice, College of Human Ecology, proposes to establish a new Graduate Certificate in Criminal Justice Education. Educational Objectives The objective of the graduate Certificate in Criminal Justice Education is to enable interested students to obtain a post-baccalaureate credential which will qualify them for a College-level instructor position. Thus, the two-prong aim of the Certificate is to first insure that the student has a sufficient competency in foundational and contemporary subject matter in the discipline; and second, prepare the student to effectively deliver criminal justice instructional material. Meeting the Educational Objectives As noted below, the 18 s.h. Certificate provides the graduate coursework necessary to satisfy the credentialing requirements for college-level instructors. And the core and elective courses provide the subject matter content and instructional delivery familiarity needed. The required core courses (9 s.h.) will insure mastery of essential criminal justice content and acquaint the student with instructional best practices. The remaining 9 s.h. of elective courses, as approved by the advisor, enables the student to tailor his/her coursework to individual interests and needs. Need for the Certificate An evaluation of applicant statements of purpose and Master of Science in Criminal Justice (MSCJ) retention data showed that a subgroup of students entered the MSCJ graduate program for the sole purpose of completing 18 s.h. of graduate coursework to become credentialed to teach criminal justice in a community college. Hence, these students withdrew from the MSCJ program once the 18 s.h. were completed, which has an adverse impact on retention and graduation rates in the program. After analyzing these data and conversing with students interested in obtaining the credential, it became apparent that the MSCJ program needed to provide students with a Certificate opportunity to meet the demand without compelling them to become admitted into the Master s degree program. Admission standards To be admitted into the graduate Certificate in Criminal Justice Education applicants must: 1. Complete the Graduate School online application with paid fee;

Certificate award estimates Estimate the number of certificates to be awarded in the first five years Year 1 Year 2 Year 3 Year 4 Year Evaluating Certificate effectiveness As with all programs offered by the Department, the Certificate application, admission, retention, completion, and time of completion data will be regularly collected and analyzed. Instructional efficacy will be evaluated using SPOTS, course material portfolios, teaching observations (peer and/or Unit administrator), and review of online delivery content. Furthermore, the Certificate will join other departmental degree programs which are all subject to periodic review to insure course and content currency, discipline relevance, and fulfillment of educational objectives. After evaluating these data, a quality enhancement plan will be developed to modify the program and improve student performance, course content, or instruction as indicated.
