What Western Oregon Student's have to say

Sarah MillsJared SmithStephon Clark
Jill recently finished her 16 week course for DPSST and works for the Independence Police Department. "Getting my Criminal Justice MA from WOU has been one of the best decisions of my life. It has allowed me to pursue and succeed in a number of diverse roles within the criminal justice system. My degree, and the knowledge I gained from the program has given me great confidence and the flexibility to map out my own career path. I have recommended the program to many colleagues and will continue to do so."

Major in Criminal Justice
"While the MS Ed: Info Tech program is geared towards teachers I found, as an Administrator in Higher Education, it provided me with many useful tools and skills that I can apply to what I do as an administrator. I have used what I have learned in the program to develop online training modules, created websites to assist in the facilitation and management of projects, and design engaging and effective methods of delivering information. I have discovered alternative ways to document and maintain policies and procedures to improve access to information and communication within my department. In addition, the program faculty are wonderful to work with and since I could take most of my classes online it worked perfectly with my busy schedule."

"I do not fear failure. I only fear the slowing up of the engine inside of me which is pounding, saying, keep going, someone must be on top, why not you? –General George S. Patton My motivation to keep pushing forward are the men and women veterans who have signed a blank check in order to protect the rights and freedoms we so often take for granted. Western Oregon University has given me the opportunity through the Criminal Justice program to give back to those men and women who need the support of the community."
