Degree: Criminal Justice

The instructors for the courses are hit and miss with some being very helpful and others not being helpful at all. The coursework was rigorous, but the nightmare occurs with the dissertation process. Chairs and readers will drop you with little notice or no notice at all. You will spend a whole semester waiting for a dissertation proposal to be reviewed, when the manual says two weeks, and have to repeat the course because the proposal was not reviewed. Despite approval from your chair and reader,... Read More

An honest review, from a very honest person. I have had both good and bad experiences here at Liberty, and all of the bad experiences honestly are with the graduate level professors. The academic advisors and financial aid offices have been professional and respectful each time I've engaged in conversation with them, and frankly, they are far more honest with me than the majority of my previous and present professors have ever been. One big negative experience is that even when you follow the APA... Read More

The Criminal Justice program is worth it if you are a working professional. I completed my masters in person at another university, so I value that experience.

Don’t expect the professors full attention. You’re a working professional, and so are they. You will do a lot of self study, and take away basically... Read More

First, I would like to make comment on the "racism" comment from "Stella". My first professor was female and African American, I am sure that comments says enough. Aside from a few minor gripes I had on how the professors conducted the courses I found the experience really rewarding. For those who have never experienced a graduate program, their will be very little instruction and a lot of reading, writing, and possible tests and quizzes. The course-work is designed for you to absorb the information... Read More

I've been a student for over 2 years now. Completed my undergraduate from another in-person college and took a lengthy break from school to start my career. Over a decade later started my masters at Liberty and due to good instruction (had an issue with 1 professor, but don't we always have that "one") and patience for a student who has taken time away from school to work on his career, I finished my Masters in record time (1 year, multiple classes during the pandemic). Because I enjoyed their instruction... Read More
