U.S. News and World Report recently released its “2018 Best Online Programs” rankings, and the University of Oklahoma Master of Science in Criminal Justice program was ranked No. 7 for “Best Online Criminal Justice Programs (and Criminology).” Seventy schools were included in the rankings.
A number of factors were considered, including admissions selectivity, faculty credentials and academic and career support services offered to students.
“Programs that incorporate diverse online learning technologies allow greater flexibility for students to take classes from a distance,” U.S. News and World Report states. “Outside of classes, strong support structures provide learning assistance, career guidance and financial aid resources commensurate with quality campus-based programs.”
The program was also ranked No. 4 among best online graduate criminal justice programs for veterans, and OU was ranked No. 9 among best online bachelor’s programs overall.
Additionally, the MSCJ program was ranked No. 9 by both CollegeChoice and The Best Schools. The BSCJ program also received accolades, coming in at No. 9 on The Best Schools list and No. 49 on the GreatValueColleges list.
