Marywood University has a strong tradition of incorporating industry professionals and their experience into student curriculum. Guest lecturers, specifically practicing industry professionals, frequently teach and share experiences with undergraduates and postgraduates.

The only university in the region that offers both undergraduate and graduate degrees in criminal justice, Marywood University’s undergraduate criminal justice program provides a solid foundation in basics of criminal justice, including law enforcement, criminal law and the courts, corrections, and criminology. Marywood’s master’s degree program in criminal justice combines criminal justice content with the management skills used by agency administrators.
