Just four years into the program, the Online Masters Criminal Justice Degree at Albany State University was named one of the top 50 in the country according to Masters Degree Online, a website aimed at promoting discussion about higher education and providing information on masters programs.
The college was one of three named in the state and Criminal Justice and Forensic Science Chair Dr. Charles Ochie says it is an honor to be recognized as one of the best.
Dr. Ochie says it proves that online degrees are a growing source of education, which opens a lot of doors for potential students who may not be able to traditionally attend college.
The college hopes to take the recognition and use it to continue building onto their program to create an Online Doctorate in Criminal Justice.
