February 7, 2017

The University of Wisconsin-Platteville is one of the Top 25 Best Online Master’s in Criminal Justice Program for 2017, according to BestColleges.com. The site assesses academic quality, affordability, and the breadth and depth of online programming at accredited public, private, and not-for-profit institutions.

What sets UW-Platteville’s Master of Science in Criminal Justice program apart is the quality of its fundamental core coursework and three areas of specialization. Course options include a variety of electives that closely examine criminal law, criminology research, statistical methods, advanced criminal justice theory, and organizational management with an eye towards law enforcement agencies. Moreover, the field of criminal justice enjoys some of the lowest unemployment rates in the country and graduates of the program are able to achieve their career goals more effectively than ever.

“A master’s in criminal justice can help further a student’s career by distinguishing them from others in the job market,” said Dr. Cheryl Banachowski-Fuller, program coordinator for the MSCJ degree. “The flexibility of our criminal justice program also allows it to fit into the lives of our busy students so they may excel in their coursework and their careers.”
