UNG to offer doctorate program in criminal justice
UNG Criminal Justice Ph.D
PEGGY COZART | University of North Georgia Dr. Douglas Orr is exactly the kind of professional UNG will seek to attract to its new criminal justice Ph.D. program. He spent three decades in law enforcement before earning a Ph.D. at Washington State University so he could teach in higher education. Orr takes over as head of UNG's Criminal Justice Department on June 1.
The University of North Georgia made a major stride this month with the approval of its first Ph.D. program. The University System of Georgia voted to approve a criminal justice Ph.D. with a focus in intelligence at UNG during a board of regents meeting on May 12.
