Bay State College is proud to announce a new articulation agreement with Salve Regina University. The agreement allows Bay State College Criminal Justice students who are pursuing their bachelor’s degree to make a seamless transition to Salve Regina’s Master of Science in Administration of Justice and Homeland Security program.
Available on Salve Regina’s Newport, Rhode Island campus and online, the program endeavors to address the professional requirements of justice leaders and practitioners in an increasingly technological and global environment.
“There is a strong focus in the industry on cyber and homeland security, and we need a strong partnership with a university like Salve Regina to give our students a competitive edge,” said Dr. William Morrissette, Department Chair of the Criminal Justice program at Bay State College. “Salve Regina has close ties with the Naval War College as well as The Pell Center for International Relations and Public Policy, giving our students a unique connection to institutions currently leading the industry.”
Students have the option to concentrate in leadership in justice or cybersecurity and intelligence, and coursework covers justice theory and process along with a range of contemporary issues such as racially based policing and psychological profiling.
Bay State College students enrolled in the Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice program who have earned a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 or better are invited to apply. Based on official review, they may even be granted up to 6 credits for relevant undergraduate courses and be able to earn their joint bachelor’s and master’s degree in as little as 5 years. Standardized graduate entrance exams, such as the GRE or GMAT, will be waived.
The program is available for online, day, and evening students at Bay State College.
