MJA Program at Cumberlands Receives National Recognition

The official seal for University of the Cumberlands.

The Master of Science in Justice Administration (MJA) program at University of the Cumberlands (UC) recently received national recognition for the second year in a row.

In College Choice’s annual evaluation of the “35 Best Online Master’s in Criminal Justice Degrees,” the MJA program at Cumberlands was ranked as the thirteenth best in the nation. College Choice, an independent online publication, compiled the rankings using data from public sources, such as U.S. News and World Report, which similarly ranked UC’s MJA program in the top 15 earlier this year.

“Our MJA program stands out from other online graduate criminal justice programs due to our faculty having decades of field and teaching experience,” said Dr. Jack Brown, Director of UC’s MJA program. “Additionally, our student body consists of very successful and dedicated professionals who rise to the occasion to meet challenges and who strive to perform to the best of their abilities whether in a professional or academic environment.”

The MJA program at Cumberlands is offered entirely online and welcomes both those who have experience in the field of criminal justice and those looking to pursue it. In addition to offering a rigorous course of study in criminal justice, the program emphasizes community service and ethical leadership as students work with faculty from across the country who are experts in the field.

Students complete 31 credit hours during their time in the program, which can be completed in as little as 12 months.
