Feedback from Criminal Justice Majors


WSU Senior

“The Criminal Justice Department is a growing department that makes up a very tight knit group.  All of the professors go the extra mile to help you out and most have a no-nonsense approach to teaching, that makes understanding the material that much easier.  This is a great program that I am proud to be a part of, and I strongly encourage you to join.”

“At Worcester State University you get the guidance and attention you need due to the small class sizes in the Criminal Justice Department.  Every teacher gets to know their students by name and are there for you when needed for help and/or advice.  You get to learn about real-life situations from the professors which helps students be more prepared when they leave Worcester State and enter the real world.”

“The Worcester State Criminal Justice Department has challenged me and helped me face my fear of speaking in front of a classroom.  The CJ Department has also helped me think critically, build skills and be a more organized person.”

WSU Senior

“The Criminal Justice Department at Worcester State University is very underrated because it has only been around for about seven years.  Here we have professors who are motivated and passionate about what they teach.  You can schedule an appointment to meet with your advisors, whenever they are available.  There are a variety of courses to take to broaden a student’s interests in that particular course.  The workloads of the courses are fair, it’s not too much and it’s not too little, all you have to do is come prepared and do what you are supposed to.”

“WSU’s Criminal Justice program is one of the best up and coming programs.  With smaller class sizes you get to personally know your teachers and they know you on a first name basis.  With its wide range of classes to choose from, you will learn the fundamentals of CJ and be challenged.”

WSU Senior

“Worcester State’s CJ Department has improved over my time here.  It is a great department because of the diversity in backgrounds from each professor.  This allows for a greater understanding of the field through various perspectives.  The small class sizes also allow for a more “one on one” learning experience where the professor gets to know you and help you on a more personal level.”

WSU Senior

“During my tenure at Worcester State University, I have seen the Criminal Justice program undergo many changes.  The professors have expanded this department with focus on the student.  Class sizes and small and the professors are always willing to spend extra time with the student.  They do this while consistently maintaining a fun, creative learning environment that actually prepares us for the real world.”

WSU Senior

“You’ll get out of it, what you put into it. You can make many connections with people of influence. The internship opportunities at WSU is expanding- local, state, federal law enforcement, Worcester Court House, probation, district, superior, clerk’s office.  The wide variety of teaching styles creates an opportunity for students to learn how to think, not what to think.”

“The Criminal Justice Program at Worcester State University is up and coming.  The class size is smaller which gives you the chance to ask questions, give feedback, receive feedback and build better communication and relationships with professors.  The Criminal Justice department offers many opportunities for students.”WSU

WSU Senior

“The Worcester State CJ program is a very good program.  With the small classes you are able to really connect and communicate with your professors and peers.  The growth of the program since I have been here has been substantial and there is now a much wider variety of classes to select from so you can focus on what interests you.  Each professor has a different way of teaching so that allows you to pick the method you learn best with and grow as a CJ student.”

WSU Senior

“I feel that the Worcester State Criminal Justice program has helped me tremendously.  The classes are small and you really build a relationship with the professors.  The CJ program has taught me how to be a real student, providing me with the knowledge that I need in the real world.”

WSU Senior

“The class size here at WSU is ideal, small enough to get close with classmates and professors but large enough that discussions are varied and interactive.  The CJ professors are great.  Most have field experience and come from an array of different backgrounds which is beneficial and offers points of views from varying perspectives.  The department has come a long way in a few years.  The material is broad and has expanded so you truly feel like you are learning about every different aspect of the field.  The Senior Seminar course is fairly new and as a senior I have found it to be extremely useful in planning for life after college.”
