Westfield State Offers an Online Option for the M.S. Criminal Justice Program

Flexible, affordable program designed for the working adult

WESTFIELD — Westfield State University’s Master of Science in Criminal Justice program now offers an online completion option. The online program allows students the ability to attend evening classes on Zoom, along with asynchronous coursework online. 

The program accommodates adult learners with part-time and full-time options with the ability to attend during the fall, spring, and summer terms. Westfield’s program is also a certified Quinn Bill (PCIPP) program providing educational incentives to regular full-time officers in Massachusetts.  

The Criminal Justice graduate program focuses on theoretical and applied issues in law enforcement, corrections, administration, and public law. Its goal is to further critical thinking about significant issues in crime and criminal justice. Judges, lawyers, managers, and criminal justice researchers supplement the faculty, bringing many practical considerations to the study of the discipline. 

“The Master of Criminal Justice provides a great opportunity for those who work in the criminal justice field to advance their education and, potentially, their career,” said Program Director Christopher Kudlac, Ph.D. “It also provides a way for those interested in entering the field to earn a master’s degree to make themselves more marketable.” 

Westfield also offers a 15-credit hour Graduate Certificate in Homeland Security for students who are looking to gain a broad understanding of homeland security issues from a criminological framework. This program can be completed concurrently with the master’s program or independently.
