The quality and affordability of Cal U’s online master’s degree program in legal studies and online bachelor’s degree program in jurisprudence have been recognized by two college-ranking services as among the best in the nation. 

The online Master of Science in Legal Studies program at California University of Pennsylvania — with concentrations in criminal justice, homeland security, and law and public policy — was ranked among the most affordable degree programs in the nation by bestvalueschools.com

Cal U’s online Bachelor of Science in Jurisprudence —  with concentrations available in legal studies and land management — was ranked nationally for quality and affordability by collegechoice.net.

“Specifically designed for working professionals with family obligations, the 100 percent online legal studies programs at Cal U provide foundational and advanced legal knowledge," said Dr. Christina Toras, an associate professor in the legal studies and jurisprudence programs.

"Classes are taught by licensed attorneys and credentialed career professionals, preparing students for today’s demanding legal workplace and for positions in the legal system — including paralegalism, court-system support, criminal justice, homeland security, public policy and future study in law school. 

"Students will particularly benefit from ‘hands-on’ academic and career advising by legal studies faculty devoted to student success.”
