U.S. News & World Report has released its 2015 comparison of the nation’s Best Online Programs, and ranked the Boston University Metropolitan College (MET) Master of Criminal Justice program #2; the Master of Science in Computer Information Systems #3; and the master’s degree programs in management #9.
This is the publisher’s first-ever ranking of Best Online Graduate Criminal Justice Programs, and MET’s fully online Master of Criminal Justice was among 55 graduate programs listed, tying for the number two spot with Arizona State University and Pace University, and preceded only by University of California—Irvine. Robert Morse, U.S. News & World Report’s chief data strategist, explained that the study of criminal justice was included because, “according to the National Center for Education Statistics and other sources, it is one of the most popular and fastest-growing disciplines on which U.S. News was not already collecting data.”
In a comparison of the Best Online Graduate Computer Information Technology Programs, MET’s fully online master’s in Computer Information Systems placed within the top three for the second year in a row out of the 42 schools listed, preceded only by the University of Southern California and Virginia Tech.
Out of the Best Online Graduate Business Programs, MET’s master’s degree programs in management—also fully online—tied for ninth with University of San Diego among the 127 listed schools.
