CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice Graduate Reviews

I'm in the online masters program for criminal justice. Overall my experience has been amazing. I've had the freedom to pick classes that cover a wide variety of subjects within the criminal justice umbrella. My professors have always been available to me by email or phone. I also do not feel like my education has suffered at all being an online student. I am held to the highest of academic standards. The coursework is rigorous but worth it in the end. You really do get to experience criminal justice from all views instead of just one!

This is an excellent school filled with many diverse, interesting, intelligent, and kind people! If you are interested in joining the world of criminal justice at school home to greatest city in the world then you won't be disappointed.
The location and campus itself was very beautiful and clean. The faculty was a mix. Some were very helpful and some particularly from the science dept were not. They were very rude and thought too much of themselves. Other faculty such as the bursars and financial aid did not go over and beyond for students. However, the overall experience was okay. Some changes that would help are teacher evaluations. Tests and work load was fair.
