best criminal justice schools in Illinois
University of Illinois in Chicago (UIC) was rated well by US News & World Report’s Criminology program survey. UIC is the best criminal justice school in the Chicago area.
Western Illinois University (WIU) is considered to be one of the best programs in the State of Illinois. It’s also one of the biggest criminal justice programs in the country.
I’ve asked around and made a few phone calls to some of my academic and law enforcement contacts to verify the info. Both of these IL schools are well regarded in academia and the work force.
