At Johnson & Wales University College of Online Education, our classes are taught by industry professionals.

While studying in the MS – Criminal Justice program, students learn from seasoned practitioners, who bring their experience to life in the online classroom.

Professor Murray Widener, DPA, is one of those faculty members. He says his background and extensive career in law enforcement is one of the things he can bring to students that they can’t learn in a textbook.

“While ‘theory and concept’ are important to guide you in your career, a lot of times the two don’t match up completely. Because I have experience in the field of law enforcement, I’ve worked with and in the courts, I’ve worked with and in the jails, [and] I was predominately with and in the law enforcement arena. I’m able to bring those experiences in,” he said. “Because I have experience, I don’t have to stop with the textbook answer.”
