Fayetteville State University Online Master’s Criminal Justice Program Receives Top Recognition

Fayetteville State University (FSU) was recently named by Top Criminal Justice Schools as having the No. 1 online Master’s in Criminal Justice program in the nation.

The ranking was created by consulting the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) College Navigator database to find accredited institutions with programs directly related to criminal justice. Schools included on the list feature doctoral- level faculty, coursework that corresponds with the latest trends and areas in criminal justice, the ability to transfer in credits from other approved institutions, and selective admission. Schools are listed by order of the average cost of graduate tuition indicated by College Navigator.

“I am proud that Fayetteville State University has been recognized for its online master’s in criminal justice program,” said Dr. Joe Brown, interim chair of the Department of Criminal Justice. “Our qualified and dedicated faculty is among the best in the field and they work hard to showcase the quality program that we have here. I could not be more pleased that their hard work and that of our students is being recognized.”
