The program was also ranked No. 2 in the state of Pennsylvania for value.

“The faculty, staff, students and alumni of the program consistently set the bar higher each year, showing that with hard work and dedication you can make a difference,” said Adam Jack, associate professor of criminal justice, chair of the Department of Criminal Justice and Social Sciences, and director of the Graduate Criminal Investigation Program.

“Our students are the next generation of criminal justice professionals, bringing both critical thinking and hands-on training, as well as compassion and ethical decision making, to a field that needs these skills more than ever,” added Jack.
