Feedback from Criminal Justice Majors
“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.”
“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.”

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
“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.”
“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.”
“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 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.”
“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.”
“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.”
