If you've ever considered a career in law enforcement, it's good to know that the University of Houston-Victoria has been recognized by a national website that ranks such programs from around the nation, and ranked the program in the top 50. In fact, Top Criminal Justice Schools ranked UHV's Bachelor of Science in criminal justice as the 18th best for 2018.

In putting together their rankings, the website compares the cost, teacher-student ratios and national rankings. Availability online is another factor in the high ranking, which allows students to fit the program around their work and other class schedules. School officials noted that a number of both students and faculty are working in the field, and they bring real-life experience to the curriculum, which brings more useful information to the program that just book learning.
