Pride Bite: NSU’s Online Criminal Justice Program Named one of the Nation’s Best for Veterans

Once again, Nova Southeastern University (NSU) has been recognized for providing students with one of the nation’s top online academic programs. U.S. News & World Report has released its rankings of top online graduate programs for veterans, and NSU’s Criminal Justice program was ranked in a tie for 21st.

This is the third year that U.S. News & World Report has issued these rankings, which identify programs that provide veterans with high-quality, flexible online educational options. According to the report, to be eligible, programs had to be part of an institution of higher learning that is certified for the GI Bill, be participating in the Yellow Ribbon Program or be a public institution that charges in-state tuition for out-of-state veterans. In addition, to be ranked, a school had to be part of the top 75% of schools in the overall 2015 Best Online Programs rankings by the publication (NSU was in the top 22 programs overall.)

NSU’s criminal justice graduate program is unique as it’s offered entirely online. This format allows students to participate in courses from anywhere in the world and provides flexibility in completing a master’s degree while providing time for students to continue their current career if need be. NSU’s master’s program in criminal justice is designed for those interested in careers in several areas, including, but not limited to: police officer; detective; FBI special agent; DEA agent; Secret Service special agent; Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) special agent; and Federal Air Marshall.
