Top Criminal Justice Programs at Colleges and Universities

American Justice Dot Org does not endorse for-profit, non-traditional universities. For-profit schools are institutions that are run by private, profit-seeking companies. We do not believe they offer a quality education in the bachelor's, master's, or doctoral level. In fact, many companies and governmental entities will not hire graduates with these degrees. Many for-profit institutions of higher education have national accreditation rather than regional accreditation. Regionally accredited schools are predominantly academically oriented, non-profit institutions. Nationally accredited schools are predominantly for-profit and offer vocational, career, or technical programs that may better serve the student who does not require a formal college education. Many regionally accredited schools will not accept transfer credits earned at a nationally accredited school. Even those for-profit schools that are regionally accredited do not meet standards of a quality education. Some are regionally accredited mostly because they offer degrees which require minimal classroom instruction and minimal levels of conceptual sophistication. If they offered degrees in something like physics or journalism or geology, they would promptly loose their accreditation or become the running joke in academia. When it's about the bottom line, academic quality severely suffers and the student loses.
