“Without question, the Wayne State College Criminal Justice Program paved the way for my career. As a student, I immediately found that professors genuinely care about their students, and want their students to succeed. I recommend this program to anyone who wants to pursue a career in law enforcement, corrections, or social services."

“With the Criminal Justice program, I gained numerous skills including public speaking, data analysis, critical thinking, and ethical reasoning. The support I received from the faculty advisors was unprecedented. The faculty walked me through class registration, internship experiences, and post-graduation decisions. I became the best student that I was capable of being because the Criminal Justice faculty challenged me to take full advantage of the opportunities Wayne State offered. I had an internship at the local probation office and then opened the door to graduate school and employment with the United States Attorney’s office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms. Currently, I am a development director for Collective for Youth.”
