Master of Arts in Criminal Justice Program Recognized with Innovation Award

April 9, 2014


The Massachusetts Association of Criminal Justice Education (MACJE) has recognized the Curry College Master of Arts Program (MACJ) with an award for "Innovation in Criminal Justice." Presented at the annual conference on April 9, 2014, the award is the first of its kind for the Association.

MACJE cited the collaborative cohort partnerships within the Curry program as unique and innovative. Such real-world partnerships have become the hallmark of the recently revised Curry MACJ curriculum, in which students work with various agencies in the community to provide evaluation, analysis and/or technical support to their partners. Recent community partners include the Boston Police, the Plymouth Intensive Probation Supervision Court, and the Cape and Islands Police and District Attorney.

Co-Director Dr. Rebecca Paynich accepted the award on behalf of the Curry faculty.

The MACJE is a statewide organization dedicated to connecting criminal justice practitioners, criminal justice researchers, educators, human service and social service professionals. The mission of the agency is "to enable its membership to provide an informed, powerful, cohesive voice to influence state legislation, policies and funding and to provide opportunities for professional support, collegiality and strategic leadership for the continuous improvement of criminal justice education and practice in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts."
