Student Success

After I completed my bachelor’s degree in Criminal Justice at Iona College, the Criminal Justice master’s program allowed me to delve into an area of law in which I was most interested. The coursework, which included reading case law and statutes, research, and writing, prepared me for law school and ultimately for a career as an attorney by allowing me to hone the skills that I now use every day. The professors, who have a variety of experience in the criminal justice field, were instrumental in helping me identify my career goals and guiding me to achieve them.
