Chelsea Patrick

Master of Science in Criminology

Chelsea graduated summa cum laude from Rowan University in May 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Marketing and a minor in Management Information Systems (M.I.S.). In addition to being a member of Beta Gamma Sigma and the Thomas N. Bantivoglio Honors Concentration, her time at Rowan also resulted in her selection as the first and only student to pilot a newly developed accelerated Marketing/M.I.S. degree program in the Rohrer College of Business. This rigorous program allowed her to complete her undergraduate degree in only three years, even while she continued to work and volunteer part-time outside of school. While this may have been daunting to some, Chelsea, being the driven and passionate individual that she is, thrived on the challenge.


Since the fall of 2014, Chelsea has worked full-time as the Faculty Affairs Data Integrity Coordinator for the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. She has always had an interest in criminology and is excited to develop that interest into a career. Her diverse background in data, research, creative thinking, and management will provide a unique base to build upon as she continues to learn and fine-tune the skills that will be indispensable for immersion in the world of criminology. Upon graduation, Chelsea hopes to use her knowledge and experience to pursue a career involving investigative work, law and policy, or research focused on psychological factors that contribute to criminal activity.
