Top Online Bachelor’s Programs in Criminal Justice

"The variety of factors in our ranking methodology helps characterize each program according to its strengths, while highlighting the elements that are most important to those considering a criminal justice undergraduate degree, such as value and graduate success.” - Rob Voce, Founder

CriminalJusticeDegreeSchools.com, a leading criminal justice-focused website that provides comprehensive information about criminal justice degree programs, careers, and law enforcement certification requirements in the US, has released its ranking of the top online bachelor’s degrees in criminal justice.

To be considered for the list, schools with an online bachelor’s program in criminal justice or a closely related field were evaluated for not-for-profit status and regional accreditation from one of the six regional accreditation agencies in the US recognized by the US Department of Education. The ranking programs are also equivalent to degrees granted to traditional, on-campus students. The rankings measure diverse factors including value, academic excellence, student experience and support, and graduate success.

The ranking uses a unique methodology that considers such criteria as the average tuition cost per online credit hour; the graduation rate; the percentage of tenured faculty; the average tuition cost per online credit hour; and school rankings according to trusted college evaluation sources.

According to Rob Voce, founder of CriminalJusticeDegreeSchools.com, “As more schools offer online programs in criminal justice, the data available for prospective students to research programs is becoming quite dense. The variety of factors in our ranking methodology helps characterize each program according to its strengths, while highlighting the elements that are most important to those considering a criminal justice undergraduate degree, such as value and graduate success.”

Overall, 50 online bachelor’s in criminal justice programs met the screening benchmarks and ranked on this year’s list. In addition to ranking factor data for included programs, the 2018 Top-Ranked Online Bachelor’s Programs in Criminal Justice list provides detailed information about top schools’ tuition rates for in-state, out-of-state, and online students; distance education services and support for online students; and admissions figures and requirements.
