WSU’s online criminal justice bachelor’s degree in the College of Arts and Sciences is the best nonprofit program in the nation, according to a new ranking by Criminal Justice Degree Online.
The group emphasized its thorough methodology:
“To reach number one, a program had to pass a gauntlet of tests: be a part of a university with stellar graduation and retention rates, provide more department resources than others, amaze us with useful answers to our survey and even answer more questions over the phone. WSU did it all.”
The group praised the faculty’s strong professional affiliations and found that the criminal justice program had the nation’s ninth highest graduation rate and 12th highest retention rate, as well as high placement in rankings from U.S. News and World Report, Forbes and Washington Monthly.
