2 MASTER OF SCIENCE IN CRIMINAL JUSTICE PROGRAM Criminal Justice is an exciting and dynamic field. Our program provides graduates with the skills and knowledge to secure both entry-level and more advanced positions in the field, and with the opportunity to make a real difference in peoples lives and in the world in which we live. Criminal Justice is multi-disciplinary in nature, and encompasses aspects of law, political science, government, management, psychology, sociology, geography, biology, and more. Our program reflects this interdisciplinary approach, and offers an exciting and contemporary array of courses that will challenge academicians and practitioners alike. Program Overview West Chester University s MS Criminal Justice program provides a high quality advanced education to both full-time and part-time students. The program is well-suited to working professionals, and offers evening courses and selected on-line electives. Professors are all seasoned professionals in their fields of expertise, and offer practical as well as academic excellence in the classroom. The Department is one of the most highly regarded by professional agencies for the quality and rigor of the program, yet because the University is state-supported, graduate tuition rates are among the lowest in the region. Our graduates are successful professionals who serve in governmental positions at the federal, state, and local levels. These include positions in law enforcement; in adult and juvenile correctional/treatment facilities and agencies; and in criminal justice administration, planning, and research. Some of our graduates pursue careers in the private sector in security, investigations, or research. Others continue their academic pursuits by earning a Ph.D. or a J.D. Many of our graduates hold teaching positions at colleges or universities, and some go on to become department or college administrators. 2

3 Our Mission The primary focus of the Master of Science in Criminal Justice program is to provide a challenging, rigorous, and dynamic program of advanced instruction which will: Ensure a sophisticated working knowledge of the major systems in the discipline; Facilitate the development of critical analytical skills to effectively address and assess the more complex issues in the fields of study; Build the knowledge base and skills to facilitate advancement in the criminal justice professions; Integrate the fields of study into practical applications so that the student takes valuable practical knowledge and applied skills into the workplace; Enable the successful graduate to rise to positions where positive and significant changes can be made in our increasingly complex and challenging global environment; and Prepare students for advanced graduate study. 3

6 ADMISSIONS PROCESS Admissions Requirements All prospective students must meet the general requirements for admission to a graduate degree program at West Chester University. To have an application considered, the student must have a baccalaureate degree from a college or university accredited in the United States or its equivalent from a school in another country, and the student must have earned an overall undergraduate GPA of 2.80 or better (on a 4.0 scale). Applications are processed by the Office of Graduate Studies. Prospective students may apply to the MS Criminal Justice program online by going to and clicking on the Apply Now button. Although the WCU website specifies deadlines for fall and spring admissions, applications to the graduate Criminal Justice program are reviewed on a rolling basis. Admission is competitive, however, and prospective students are encouraged to apply early. Upon receipt of all necessary credentials, the Office of Graduate Studies will forward the materials to the Criminal Justice Department for further consideration and approval. The department places special emphasis on the Academic and Professional Goals Statement found within the application, the undergraduate transcripts, and the three required letters of recommendation from the applicant s former college professors or others who can attest to the applicant s suitability for graduate study. Any other relevant materials submitted with the application (e.g., GRE or MAT scores, writing samples, resume, etc.) will also be considered by the departmental admissions committee and the dean of graduate studies. Notification of Admissions All applications are reviewed by both the appropriate department or program and the dean of graduate studies. The dean will notify applicants of the acceptance or rejection of their applications. Notification will typically be made via . If the applicant failed to provide an address on the application, a letter will be mailed to the applicant to inform them of the admissions decision. 6

7 Matriculation Fee At the time of acceptance into a graduate program at West Chester University, the student must submit a nonrefundable fee of $100 to reserve his/her admission. This sum is applied toward the student s tuition and/or fees but is nonrefundable should the student subsequently decide not to attend West Chester University. The student s admission is canceled if he/she fails to submit the $100 matriculation fee by the due date specified in the letter or . TUITION AND FEES Students should refer to the Office of the Bursar website for current fees and expenses. Financial Aid Various loans (e.g., Federal Perkins, Stafford, etc.) are available to eligible students. Graduate students may also be eligible for Federal Work Study. Questions regarding financial aid should be addressed directly to the Office of Financial Aid ( ). A representative of the Veterans Administration is also in the Office of Financial Aid to counsel and act as a liaison between students and the Veterans Affairs Office in financial and other matters. A limited number of Graduate Assistantships are available oncampus, which include a tuition waiver and stipend, to well-qualified students. The selection process for these positions is highly competitive. Qualified students are also encouraged to apply for the various academic scholarships available at WCU. Please refer to the on-line Graduate Catalog for listings of scholarships and application instructions and deadlines. 7

8 ENROLLMENT CLASSIFICATION Full Matriculation, Provisional Matriculation, and Non-Degree Status Students are classified as matriculated or non-degree. A matriculated student is one who has applied to and been accepted to the program, paid the $100 deposit to accept the offer of admission, and subsequently enrolled in classes. Full matriculation is granted to a student who has met all admission requirements. Provisional matriculation may be granted to a student who has not yet presented all prerequisites required by the department or university (e.g., final undergraduate transcript showing evidence of degree completion). Provisionallymatriculated students must fulfill the conditions stipulated in their provisional acceptance by the time that application to degree candidacy is made. Non-degree students are those who are permitted to take a class without having applied or been admitted to the graduate program. Non-degree students may schedule up to nine credits of course work on a non-matriculated basis. Students taking courses under this policy are expected to meet the minimum GPA required for graduate work and must obtain permission prior to enrolling in a course. Taking courses on a non-degree basis does not guarantee admission to a degree program at a later date. Additional course work (beyond 9 credits) may be taken only after the student has applied and been accepted as a matriculated student. Non-degree students are encouraged to begin the formal application process immediately after they have decided to pursue a graduate degree at WCU. Full-time and Part-time Status Students are also classified as full- or part-time based upon the number of credits for which they are enrolled in a given semester. Those registered for fewer than 9 credits in a semester are considered to be parttime students. Full-time students are those who are enrolled in 9-15 credits. Graduate students are not permitted to enroll in more than 15 credits per semester. 8

9 SCHEDULING CLASSES Students are able to schedule for classes each semester through mywcu which can be accessed through the WCU website. Consult with Dr. Brewster prior to registering to discuss your progress toward the degree and your plan for future semesters. Keep in mind that the core classes are each offered once per year, and students should plan accordingly. Historically, CRJ 508 and CRJ 509 have been offered every fall semester, and CRJ 505, CRJ 507, and CRJ 600 have been offered each spring. The rotation of elective courses occurs less frequently, and students are encouraged to take any electives that pique their interest whenever they are offered (since those electives may not be offered again for 3 to 5 semesters). Students should register as soon as mywcu indicates eligibility for registration. This will ensure securing a seat in desired classes, and will also help the department measure demand for various classes. ADVISING All prospective graduate students should contact Dr. Mary Brewster with questions related to admissions, curriculum, and course registration. All admitted students will be assigned Dr. Brewster as their advisor. Each student should meet with Dr. Brewster at least once per semester to go over degree progress and course registration for the next semester. In addition, students should contact Dr. Brewster with any questions or concerns that arise at any time related to the graduate curriculum, degree candidacy, continuous enrollment, graduation clearance, etc. APPLICATION TO DEGREE CANDIDACY Application for degree candidacy must be made immediately upon completion of the first 12 to 15 semester hours of course work in the degree program. Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 to be approved for degree candidacy. 9

11 OTHER IMPORTANT ACADEMIC INFORMATION Good Standing/Academic Probation/Dismissal Time to Complete the Degree All courses counting toward the degree must be completed within a 6-year period. This includes transfer courses and the completion of Proseminar. Continuous Registration (GSR799) All graduate students who have been admitted into a graduate program must maintain continuous registration each semester. Graduate students are not required to maintain matriculation during the summer sessions unless they intend to complete their final degree requirements during this period. On occasion, a student may need a semester or two off for personal or professional reasons. Such a student should request registration for GSR 799 Continuous Registration (a noncredit registration category used to record the fact of continuous enrollment) to save their spot in the program and to avoid having to reapply to the program. The Office of Graduate Studies should be notified of a student s desire for registration for GSR 799-Continuous Registration via A student who needs an extended leave of absence (i.e., more than two semesters) must request a formal leave of absence from the dean of graduate studies. With the approval of the graduate coordinator and the dean of graduate studies, a leave of absence may be granted for a minimum of one calendar year. Leave of absence forms may be obtained from the Office of Graduate Studies and Extended Education. A leave of absence does not extend the six-year time limit for completion of all degree requirements. Unless a graduate student maintains continuous enrollment or is granted a leave of absence, he/she is ineligible to return until readmitted. A formal application for readmission must be completed and submitted to the Office of Graduate Studies and Extended Education. Application forms are available in the Office of Graduate Studies and Extended Education. 11

12 Grading and Transcripts The grading scheme used by most graduate faculty is as follows: A A B B B C C C F below 70 Graduate students are not permitted take courses on a pass/fail basis, although they may audit a course provided they complete and submit a change in class status form to the Office of Graduate Studies by the end of the add period. Tuition and fees apply whether or not a course is taken for credit. Audited courses will not count toward degree requirements. End of semester grades are not mailed to students, but are accessed though each student s mywcu page. Students whose employers require official transcripts for tuition reimbursement can request a hard copy of the transcript from the Graduate Studies Office. The form to request the transcript is available on the Graduate Studies webpage.
