The Criminal Justice program at Emmanuel College prepares students to enter the multifaceted field of law enforcement, corrections, probation/parole, and juvenile justice. The Criminal Justice program at Emmanuel takes both an academic and practical approach. The student will pursue the substantive investigation of criminal justice as well as participating in practical experiences such as labs and internships. The program is also interdisciplinary, drawing from studies in sociology, psychology, political science, and pre-law studies.
The 3+2 program offers Emmanuel College students the opportunity to complete their Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Emmanuel in three years and their Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from Richmont University in two years, resulting in only five years to complete all undergraduate and graduate coursework.

Frequently Asked Questions
If I follow the recommended curriculum, achieving at least the minimum GPA for required courses, will I automatically be accepted into RU?
Admission to RU is not automatic. To qualify, a student must meet all of EC’s requirements for graduation (except for the completion of a major). RU reviews the applications. However, we never submit applications to RU unless we truly feel the student is up to the challenge. A student must complete all of the forms and requirements as a degree-seeking student who is applying to RU.
How do I enroll in the program?
Interested students will complete an application (available beginning Spring 2014) no later than fall of the sophomore year. They will be interviewed by one of the psychology faculty members to discuss their academic records and obtain copies of all required forms.
How does the 3+2 program work?
Participants in the program will complete three academic years at EC, fulfilling all but three hours of EC’s psychology major (100 credit hours). During the student’s three years at EC, five graduate option courses must be completed with at least a “B” grade in each course. These five courses will then be accepted to RU. View the four-year plan for the EC’s B.A. Psychology 3+2 program to learn more.
After completing an additional 24 hours of courses on the RU campus, the student will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from EC.
Completion of a total of 67 semester hour Master of Arts in Professional Counseling from RU prepares students for Tennessee and Georgia state licensure as a professional counselor and/or doctoral students.
When do I graduate from EC?
Once you have completed your first year at RU with a grade of “B” or higher in your classes, you will return to EC to participate in the commencement exercises and receive your B.A. in Psychology.
May I enroll in RU graduate classes at EC if I have not been accepted into the 3+2 program?
Yes, you may enroll in the RU graduate classes and elect to complete the work that is outlined in the syllabus, which will be different from our traditional versions of the same courses. However, the graduate hours transfer to RU only if you are accepted into one of RU’s programs.
If I follow the recommended 3+2 curriculum but then decide to stay at EC, will I still be able to graduate from EC in four years?
A student working toward the 3+2 program who decides to remain at EC for the fourth year will be required to complete the remaining courses for EC’s B.A. or B.S. in Psychology. A student can switch to any major EC offers during the first or second year or to other social science majors (e.g., Social Work) during the junior year. Switching to a major outside of psychology after the sophomore year may extend the number of years it takes to complete a degree at EC.
If I'm not certain which type of counseling to pursue, which sequence should I follow?
You should discuss the situation with your advisor, but generally speaking EC’s B.A. in Psychology sequence confers the greatest flexibility for students who have not yet decided on a career in psychology.
Note, however, the three sequences (B.A., B.S., 3 +2 B.A.) are largely identical in the first year.
