About the Author

My name is Radek Gadek and I am a graduate of the renowned Masters in Criminal Justice program at Boston University.

As you continue on your quest in finding the right criminal justice program, I hope that Criminal Justice Degree, College, and Career Blog will be your guide.

I started this blog in 2008 because there is virtually no constructive information on criminal justice education and careers. I know that there is great information out there, but it is mostly hidden behind “cookie cutter” sites that maybe provide general information on CJ education and careers.

    Hi I just found your blog and I love it so far! I’m a student in the Criminology Law and Society Master’s program at UC Irvine you recently featured…and our program assistant director wanted to share with us all so she sent an email blast about your blog! Ironically BU was the other program I was considering… :)

      Thanks JTM

  • Amy

    I just wanted to say thank you so much for creating this blog! You are saving my life right now (as well as my sanity). You have completely convinced me to ditch my pre-conceived notions in regards to online classes through an accredited university. I’ll be attending Washington State University Online :) Now I can’t wait to get started on my major in Criminal Justice and begin my career in law enforcement and eventually the FBI or DEA. You’ve created a monster in me, I can’t stop clicking through the archive!
