FORT WORTH (November 13, 2015) — Tarleton State University’s School of Criminology, Criminal Justice and Strategic Studies offers one of the nation’s top 50 best-value online programs. The ranking comes from Value Colleges, an independent online guide to the best values in undergraduate and graduate programs.
Rankings include only accredited, nationally and regionally ranked institutions that have demonstrated quality over time and strike the perfect balance between excellence, market value and reasonable tuition rates.

“Given the current challenges for criminal justice professionals, an undergraduate or graduate degree in criminal justice is no longer a luxury; rather, it is a necessity,” said Dr. Alex del Carmen, executive director of Tarleton’s criminology school. “To help more working professionals get that degree, many of the school’s undergraduate classes as well as its master’s program in criminal justice can be completed online.
“Our online programs are flexible and allow the working professional to adhere to academic requirements without sacrificing work and family obligations,” he said. “Students can learn when they want, where they want, maintaining their professional and personal obligations.”
In addition to its online programs in criminal justice, Tarleton boasts a full Global Campus offering 20 e-learning opportunities. Visit http://www.tarleton.edu/globalcampus/index.html for more information.
