Criminal Justice Program Receives High National Ranking

College Factual Ranks Sacred Heart as one of the country’s best schools for criminal justice and corrections

College Factual has ranked Sacred Heart University’s criminal justice program as one of the top of its kind nationwide.

College Factual collects and analyzes data and insights from students and faculty to rank programs offered by four-year U.S. colleges and universities. Its aim is to help prospective students find their best collegiate fit.

The criminal justice program’s four primary goals are to provide undergraduate students with comprehensive knowledge of the field, the ability to process and apply information, an understanding of the need for ethics and leadership skills in criminal justice and opportunities to test their knowledge through internships with criminal justice agencies.

“This ranking is a great reflection of the faculty and students involved in the Department of Criminal Justice,” said James E. McCabe, department chair. “The ethical issues and concerns that surround the criminal justice industry are changing at a fast pace. We need students who are prepared to handle these issues with proficiency and flexibility as they progress into their professional careers. Our department aims to provide them with an educational program that can properly prepare them for such issues.”
