In addition to academic accreditation, our full-time faculty have extensive experience in the criminal justice system. All of the part-time faculty are practicing professionals in the area that they teach—which is a major strength of the criminal justice department.
Faculty professionals are federal, state, and local law enforcement officers, judges from the courts of common pleas, probation department supervisors, criminalists from forensic laboratories, forensic psychiatrists, and attorneys with prosecutorial, administrative, and defense experience.
These top level professionals are recognized practitioners in Pennsylvania and in many other states. They are directly involved in day to day operations and decision making, allowing students to hear on-the-job realities.
