WEST HAVEN, Conn., Jan. 23, 2018 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The University of New Haven today announced that U.S. News & World Report has ranked the faculty in its graduate online criminal justice program first in the nation.
Based on a nationwide survey of online programs, the ranking said the University's faculty earned a perfect 100 score in the faculty credentials and training category.
That category is a measure of whether online programs employ instructors with academic credentials that mirror those of instructors for campus-based programs and also whether the colleges and universities offering online degree programs have the resources in place to train instructors to teach distance learners.
"Our talented faculty members are very experienced law enforcement professionals, scholars, and researchers," said Mario Gaboury, dean of the Henry C. Lee College of Criminal Justice and Forensic Sciences. "Using their extensive expertise, they foster practical and thought-provoking discussions and create exceptional learning opportunities for our online students."
