Description

I chose AMU due to the fact that they offered a concentration in counter terrorism and that most of their staff and students were current or prior military. They were also being considered for regional accreditation, which they earned. The staff are very knowledgable and many of them bring a lot to the table with experience and education at military war colleges. The assignments are tough but I know I am getting what I pay for, plus the books are free(except for Masters programs). They accepted a lot of credits(26) from my active military time that my community college did not.My G.I. bill is going to a good program. I am very pleased with the school.

AMU BA in Criminal Justice
July 1, 2016
I really enjoyed my experience with AMU for my BA in Criminal Justice. The professors were professional in their teaching as well as providing real life examples. The course objectives were relative to the CJ field and I truly felt confident in the knowledge I gained. The on-line support, materials, and live chat were fantastic and really was the cherry on the top during the tougher classes. I especially enjoyed the independent work, the interaction ...

Great Experience
July 8, 2015
I selected AMU for the fact that I am a Veteran and have been an active Police Officer for the past 20 years. Several major Law Enforcement programs were big supports of AMU so I thought it would be a good place to look into. After looking into it and several others, I found AMU to be the best fit. It was just as expensive as many traditional school minus the books, but the program ...

Great School
December 9, 2014
AMU is not a bad school yes some of the instructors do not have the rapid response like many people want but that is in a normal classroom. AMU has made the online experience very enjoyable and free flowing. Much of online learning comes from what your peers say about your thought process, understanding and depth innate nature for learning. We can all give a myriad number of reasons why its bad. It is not ...

AMU Criminal Justice Degree
December 8, 2014
I started taking classes at AMU following a few years off from pursing my degree from the traditional brick and mortar school. After taking my first few classes I knew I'd made the right choice in AMU and for online distance learning. The classes at AMU are geared towards the individuals needs. Given there are still requirements that need to be met, but the classes allow for you to structure and manage your time accordingly. ...

Means to an End
December 5, 2014
Ok, so in the interest of full disclosure I chose AMU for three reasons, they accept TA, they accepted my CCAFs for credit, and I can could work and assume class loads based on my comfort. While I would’ve liked a traditional brick-n-mortar class room, AMU served as a means to an end…I needed a degree to be competitive for promotion and for a post-retirement career. Now that the BA is out of the way, ...

Excellent Choice for Online Learning
October 9, 2013
AMU was an excellent experience for me. I graduated with a BA in Criminal Justice, with Honors, in August 2013. I transferred into AMU after doing two years at University of Phoenix's online program and the difference was night and day. Unlike UOP, assignments are done at AMU on your own and without team groups. I believe working in groups is good, but not in a distance learning environment. You are beholden to partners who ...

If I were to recommend a university to anyone, AMU would definitely be at the top of my list.  I have never experienced such professionalism, concern, and great assistance than I have with this university.  I chose Criminal Justice because it was what I always wanted to study.  I graduate in November 2012 and it's been such a great experience.  My concentration was with forensics and I wish that we could do more of a hands-on approach, but it's all right, I was able to grasp a better understanding how forensics works.  Overall, great university and criminal justice program.

OK, first of all, I do not know why ANYONE would do a degree in criminal justice. This is such a worthless degree. People in national defense, homeland security laugh at this degree. My son's high school adviser suggested criminal justice because he has the intention of working for the US Marshall's service upon graduation. UM......NO! CJ is a degree if you are a cop and want a degree. Or, if you work in the Bureau of prisons. Or, you want to have a degree and be a private investigator. NOT for federal law enforcement or anything in government or State service. Or, I guess if you want to teach other shrubs criminal justice. I have advised my son to take accounting, political science, PHYS-ED, anything but this locally oriented degree.
