Many years ago, I decided that I wanted to become a Lawyer someday, at first I wasn't relatively sure what category of law I wanted to study. From the time when I was born, I lived on a Native American reservation, the area here is rural, and to be honest, there isn't much to do. I often heard stories from my friends who lived in the city talk about going to the mall, movie theatres, and riding the bus in the metropolitan area where they reside. I was a tad jealous of the closeness and convenience... Read More

After finishing my bachelors in business I thought I wanted to explore a degree in Criminal Justice, ASU is ranked very high so I applied and was accepted. That's when it all fell apart. The School of Criminal Justice is horrible, to say the least. Very unprofessional, the instructors change their syllabus during the year and have a clause in the syllabus to cover them. The entire program was ran by what seems to be Dr students and have no idea how to actually run a class. The worst of all was Redner-Vera.... Read More

The CCJ program at ASU is incredible. There is such a willingness from the Professors to help us succeed, and the other students are very nurturing. Though the program is rigorous, the resources available are innumerable, research opportunities are fantastic, and the program itself fosters an excellent learning environment. I could have not picked a better University or program to call "home."

I had a good experience getting my MA in Criminal Justice at ASU. For most courses you had the choice of 7.5 or 15 week semesters. The course load was doubled for the shorter semester. I chose the 7.5, and would concentrate on one class at a time as I did two per semester. The professors were knowledgeable and responsive, and I did learn a great deal.

Im a full-time online student. The ASU portal they use is extremely easy and convenient. Everything is laid out perfect for you. The classes are accelerated so that's a good thing that I'm able to graduate in 10 months. However, I find that the instructors are pretty bad and put you in bad spots to really get A's. Directions are not clear for assignments and they take forever to grade stuff & reply to emails. Seems like they grade by whatever side of the bed they get out of. I like CJ instructors...

I researched many online institutions and eventually made the choice to attend Arizona State University. I completed my Master's in Criminal Justice mostly for my career and to eventually teach part time at the local community college. I read many mixed reviews and came to the realization that I needed to make a choice because every online institution had their pros and cons. I am very satisfied my choice and happy to have graduated from a credible institution. Remember, you will get out what you... Read More

For my major, Criminology and Criminal Justice, the Downtown Phoenix Campus is located in the ideal place for networking, research, and having access to many law enforcement and judicial opportunities. The faculty encourages independence and self-sufficiency, where as in some aspects such as mentoring could have been improved. Otherwise, the program gave workshops, seminars, and conferences dedicated to various components that make up criminal justice/criminology (i.e. juvenile justice, sex-trafficking,... Read More

The program is designed well with an easy to follow road map. More consistency and cohesiveness is needed between courses and with among professors who teach multiple classes.
