    I don't see where this has been discussed before. Well, it's a new program: https://www.tamiu.edu/newsinfo/2021/05/tamaiucjphdd50321.shtml

    Texas A&M International University offers a hybrid Ph.D. in Criminal Justice. The first semester is on-campus/face-to-face and subsequent semesters are online. I think that's pretty neat if you live in the area (Laredo, TX). It requires 49 credits if you're entering with an MA/MS or 52 credits if you're entering with a J.D.


    I am thrilled to see how rapidly online doctoral programs in criminal justice have increased. I remember the time when online Walden, Capella (no longer offering), and Nova Southeastern had an online doctorate in criminal justice. I will use this thread to share other schools offering a comprehensive Ph.D. in Criminal Justice/Criminology online/hybrid. Please add if I missed any program.

    *Generally, requires students to take any doctoral elective from the Helms School of Government (criminal justice, homeland security, public policy, and public administration). However, you can request a course exemption, which allows you to take courses from other schools by articulating why you wish to take those courses. I was able to take my three electives from the School of Education.
