SUMTER, SC — The Morris College Criminal Justice program has been named Number 8 on the “Top Ten Law Enforcement Degree Programs 2017-2018” by Schools.com. Ranked with the likes of CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice, Columbia College (Fairfax, VA), and fellow South Carolina institution, The Citadel, Morris College earned its number 8 spot in the rankings based on its admissions policy, low 15:1 student-faculty ratio, and total number of law enforcement degrees conferred to students in 2015. 2015 is the same year Morris College’s Criminal Justice program was named number 2 on the CorrectionalOfficer.org list of “Top Schools Supporting Careers in Criminal Justice and Corrections”. Dr. Jacob Butler, Interim Academic Dean explained in 2015 that, “This rating by a national agency confirms the efforts that we, at Morris College, have made to create and maintain academic programs that can stand toe to toe with anybody else in terms of quality”.
The new national ranking on Schools.com further supports Morris College’s efforts. Morris College has consistently had senior students in Criminal Justice score above the national average on the national Major Field Achievement Test and go on to obtain gainful employment in the Criminal Justice field. The institution is dedicated, not only to employing faculty experienced in the field, but also bringing in guest lecturers ranging from coroners, state troopers, solicitors, and forensic scientists to further enhance the education of Criminal Justice students. Most recently, Morris College has established a partnership with the Greenville Police Department to prepare students for a career in law enforcement.
