College Values Online has identified Indiana University of Pennsylvania’s online master’s degree program in criminology as a top best value program.
The 2017 rankings reviewed programs across the nation that have “flexible, convenient, quality solutions” for professionals seeking to advance their career through education, editors said. Programs considered for the recognition were also required to
be completed at a faster than average pace.
Ranked at number 15, editors noted that IUP’s program could be completed in one year of full-time study. The recognition also noted that IUP’s criminology alumni are working at places like the FBI, U.S. Postal Inspector’s Office, DEA, CIA, U.S. Customs,
federal and county probation, and Pennsylvania State Police.
This recognition follows three years of the IUP program ranked in the top 10 of online graduate criminal justice programs by U.S. News & World Report.
IUP is one of four public, doctoral research universities in Pennsylvania. U.S. News & World Report consistently ranks IUP as one of the nation’s top doctoral universities.
IUP has been included in the Princeton Review’s "Best Colleges” guidebook for 15 years and has been included in Washington Monthly magazine’s national rankings of schools based on their contributions to society.
