William Peace University has been awarded another national accolade for its online learning. This time, the University ranks No. 7 nationally on the 2017 list of “10 Most Affordable Online Bachelor’s Degrees in Criminal Justice” by Best College Values. The organization commends WPU for not only its affordability, but strong curriculum and experiential learning, stating, “With over 150 years in downtown Raleigh, the state’s capital, WPU’s faculty and advisers provide students with direct networking connections and opportunities within the criminal justice field.”
“The combination of our engaging faculty and compelling curriculum creates fantastic opportunities for our students.”
This is the second national accolade for the WPU Online Criminal Justice Program in 2017 – the first coming this past January from OnlineU.org‘s national list of “2017 Most Affordable Online Colleges for Criminal Justice,” where WPU checked in at No. 16.
