The University of Wisconsin -Platteville Master of Science in Criminal Justice program is pleased to announce its renewal of two transfer agreements which ensure students will have advanced placement with professional credentials in UW-Platteville’s highly-regarded online graduate program.

One of the renewed partnerships is with the University of Wisconsin-Madison Wisconsin Certified Public Manager Program. Under the agreement, successful completion of the program equates to six graduate-level elective credits in the UW-Platteville M.S. in Criminal Justice program.

The other renewed agreement is for the completion of the National Center for Credibility Assessment Psychophysiological Detection of Deception Program and the PDD 600 Forensic Psychophysiology internship. Successful completion of both will equate to six graduate-level elective credits in the criminal justice master’s program.

“In a rapidly changing global society, these academic partnerships are important mechanisms to strengthen the criminal justice curriculum and practices and help graduate students become more positioned to lead the way in advancing all segments of the criminal justice system as professionals in the field,” said Dr. Cheryl Banachowski-Fuller, M.S. in Criminal Justice program coordinator. 

The renewed agreements will extend for another three years. Students must meet all UW-Platteville admission requirements to take advantage of these opportunities.
