The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice (SCCJ) online graduate degree program at Arizona State University continues for a seventh year as one of the nation’s top 10 such courses of study, according to U.S. News & World Report’s annual rankings announced Jan. 26. The online Master of Arts degree program earned a No. 7 ranking for 2021.

“I am delighted that U.S. News once again has recognized our online graduate degree as a top 10 program nationally,” said SCCJ Director and Foundation Professor Jon Gould. “Students who study with us benefit from some of the best faculty in the field and graduate with multiple opportunities for their future. We are committed to maintaining the excellence of our program.”

Most of the school’s more than 210 online graduate students are criminal justice professionals in the criminal justice field who seek a graduate degree to improve their career potential. The program graduated 44 such students in December 2020 and 65 in May 2020. SCCJ is within the Watts College of Public Service and Community Solutions.
