How Can I Determine the Quality of an Online Degree Program?

Quality of Online Degree Programs

Since online degree programs are springing up left and right (and they don't have long held reputations, or even lines of alums to testify on their behalf), it is very difficult to determine which programs are reputable and which are not. It's important to conduct rigorous research prior to determining which school is most appropriate to seek your criminal justice degree. Find out the following information prior to selecting a school:

  • Is this school accredited?
  • How is the staff/faculty? You can call, ask to interview someone (or a few people) over the phone, visit the offices (if possible) and even ask for some alum contacts.
  • Do online research regarding these schools and make sure there are no outstanding complaints or glaring problems
  • Ask for a full explanation of their curriculum programs and check out the information with a professional in the field....make sure that what they are teaching is important and well-respected.
