WVSU Enrolling First Students in Law Enforcement and Administration Master's

Institute, WV - West Virginia State University proudly announces that the Master of Science in Law Enforcement and Administration is now accepting students into its first class.  The degree was approved last fall by WVSU's accrediting agency.

The goal of the program is to provide instruction in the field of criminal justice, particularly in law enforcement and administration.  The program is designed for those currently in the law enforcement field; in management positions and in other areas of the criminal justice system; and for undergraduate students who seek a graduate level degree program that will enhance their efforts to gain employment in this field.

To be eligible for the program, students must have earned an undergraduate degree from an accredited college or university in a criminal justice, law enforcement or related field and meet other graduate level admissions requirements. The degree requires 36 hours of instruction in the required curriculum for completion.
