Class of 2004

“The Criminal Justice courses are of superior quality and engage me and each of my fellow students in critical thinking. Each course provides well-rounded and thought provoking material that encourages both micro and macro level attention to crime and criminality.”


Wyatt Merritt

Class of 2010

“The instruction and opportunities at WOU have opened doors that have allowed me to pursue and further both my educational and professional goals. The Criminal Justice Department faculty provided key roles in my initial and foundational understanding of the role of law enforcement in which I am currently involved with.”
