Fully accredited programs
Choosing online learning means you get the same quality education as students who attend classes at one of our campus locations, but in a way that best suits you. MBU has accreditation, approvals and compliances that put us on an even playing field with other universities.
Our curriculum is based on current Criminal Justice needs, and our faculty consists of active Criminal Justice Professionals who provide valuable, real-world expertise. We update our academic instruction continually to reflect the latest proven concepts, methods and practices. Our graduates have a track record of successful and rewarding careers after graduation.
Our faculty members have either masters or doctorate degrees. Professors understand that career oriented students learn differently—they don’t just memorize information—they want to know that the courses they take will be applicable to their profession. We integrate some class assignments into projects that can apply to a student’s area of interest or workplace.

When and how long you login during the week for online classes is completely up to you. Courses are constructed so there are no required login times during the week. As long as you meet the deadlines specified by the professor, you can complete your assignment at any time of the day or night.
