The best criminal justice schools in Alaska are not dime a dozen like they are in other states. But there are at least 3 best criminal justice colleges in Alaska that offer criminal justice degrees, certificates, and individual courses.
The 3 criminal justice schools are actually state universities that you can easily find under the Alaska criminal justice colleges page right on this site. So here are the top Alaskan picks.
best criminal justice schools in Alaska
- University of Alaska – Anchorage
- University of Alaska – Fairbanks
- University of Alaska – Southeast in Juneau
I know the list is not extensive, but it isn’t disappointing either. Consider that Alaska doesn’t have the population nor the need for as many schools like California, New York, Texas, or Florida do.
The Alaskan state university system is great if you live in Alaska, however if you plan on using your degree for something “bigger” (grad school, top level positions, etc.), then I would recommend coming down to the lower 48 states. You are more likely to find better criminal justice degree programs there.
However, if you are not planning to move, I would recommend any of the universities listed or delving into online education by checking my recommendations for the top online criminal justice degree programs by academic level (see navigation on top).
