How Have Graduates Benefited from the Program?
"The Seton Hall Program provides the right mix of serious study in educational administration disciplines and in the problems and issues of practice. Their goal is to prepare reflective practitioners, and I think they are succeeding."

“The New Jersey State Police Graduate Studies program provided me with three essential ingredients: knowledge, skills and more opportunities in both my former law enforcement profession and retired educational endeavors. Having earned three graduate degrees at The Hall — the more recent, an Ed.D., has resulted in appointments to specialized assignments while on active duty and then, a fulfilling secondary career in retirement as a member of the NJSPGSP Program’s adjunct faculty. Intrinsically, a higher education has enhanced my ability to express my thoughts clearly in speech and in writing, and to further appreciate and grasp abstract concepts and theories. It has enabled me to increase my deeper understanding of the world with a true sense of challenge, achievement, recognition and respect for others. This is a unique program in excellence, and one that has earned its slogan of putting students first."
Domenick Varricchio, Ed.D. ’99, Police Lieutenant, Retired, Port Authority Police Department and Adjunct Faculty, NJSPGSP
“Opportunities gleaned from this educational program have significantly contributed to both my personal and professional gains. An understanding of managerial and leadership functions have served me well in all management and supervisory positions throughout my career in the New Jersey State Police. This program has also given me access to a number of informal mentors who provided much needed advice and support throughout my student years at Seton Hall University. Such dedication and guidance enabled me to attain both a Seton Hall post-graduate Educational Specialist Degree and a Doctorate Degree in Education.
I currently serve as an Adjunct Professor at several colleges and universities, and I can attest that it is particularly the emphasis on personal attention and assistance that makes Seton Hall University educational programs a unique experience for students.”
