How a Degree from Seton Hall Can Advance Your Career

The Police Graduate Studies Program at Seton Hall caters specifically to the New Jersey and New York law enforcement communities and is the only master's degree of its kind in New Jersey. It has become the preferred graduate program for the Police, New Jersey probation officers, the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, and various other organizations. 

Graduates of the program advance in their career ranks and, many times, are offered specialized assignments within their agencies. Alumni have secured high-level corporate and government positions upon retirement. Additionally, many alumni teach as adjunct professors and full-time faculty members in institutions throughout the United States.
How Graduates Have Benefited from the Program

“The 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
