CSUSB’s online criminal justice master’s program makes two national ranking lists

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The online criminal justice program at Cal State San Bernardino has been named to two national ranking lists for 2017.

TheBestSchools.org placed the CSUSB criminal justice online master’s degree program at No. 15 in its ranking, “The 25 Best Online Master of Criminal Justice Degree Programs.”

“We selected the programs based on the quality of the program, the types of courses offered, the faculty, rankings, awards, and reputation, including the school’s reputation for effectively providing online degree programs,” the online ranking service said.

CSUSB was the only California State University and the only California university listed in the top 25. The University of Cincinnati was ranked in the top spot.

And College Choice, a leading authority in college search and rankings, listed CSUSB at No. 35 in its list of “35 Best Online Master’s in Criminal Justice Degrees, 2017.” UC Irvine (No. 5) and La Jolla-based National University (No. 34) were the only other California schools named with CSUSB. Michigan State was ranked No. 1 on this list.

“Our rankings are based (on) data that students have indicated is most important to them: cost and reputation,” College Choice said on its website. “Our data is drawn from a number of public sources, including U.S. News & World Report, the National Center for Education Statistics, and PayScale.”

The criminal justice department has had both its undergraduate and graduate degree programs named to national rankings in the past.

In the summer of 2016, the online bachelor’s program was ranked No. 2 by the Center for Online Education in its “Best Online Bachelor’s in Criminal Justice Degree Programs” list, and No. 7 by the Best Degree Program in its “Top 30 Best Online Criminal Justice Degree Programs (Bachelor’s) 2016.”

In May 2016, College Choice listed the online criminal justice master’s degree program No. 12 in the United States, and the only CSU campus to make its “Best Online Masters in Criminal Justice Degree Programs, 2016” list.

Visit the CSUSB Department of Criminal Justice website for more information on its programs.

Man suspected of setting multiple fires charged with arson

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. - A 23-year-old Yucaipa man was charged today with several felony counts of arson in connection with multiple fires that burned over 900 acres and seriously injured one firefighter.

Jarrod Samra was charged with one count of Arson Causing Great Bodily Injury and eight counts of Arson of a Structure of Forest. A copy of the complaint and a fact sheet can be downloaded at the following link: https://goo.gl/q7LWhi.

If convicted as charged, Samra faces 19 years in state prison.

"This arsonist will be held accountable to the fullest extent of the law," District Attorney Michael Ramos said. "The history of fires in our county and the destruction they have caused to human life and property is absolutely tragic. Thankfully, through the investigative work of our law enforcement and public safety partners, we were able to stop this individual and prevent any future destruction or potential loss of life."

Samara was arrested Thursday, Aug. 3, after deputies responding to reports of a vegetation fire on Hwy. 38, observed a vehicle in the area where the fire originated and made contact with the vehicle. The driver was identified as Jarrod Samra. After further investigation, Samra was arrested.

"Using investigative tools and gathering evidence led the Task Force to identifying Jarrod Samra as the suspect responsible for at least 8 fires," Sheriff John McMahon said. "This is a perfect example of public safety agencies working together to keep our communities safe."

Samra is scheduled to be arraigned Monday afternoon at 1:00 p.m. at the San Bernardino Justice Center in Dept. S-8. This case is culmination of a multi-agency arson task force involving the San Bernardino County District Attorney's Office, San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department, San Bernardino County Fire, Cal Fire, United States Forest Service, and the San Bernardino Police Department.

"San Bernardino County Fire takes arson personally due to the extreme threat to the citizens we serve and the firefighters who put themselves between the fire and communities they protect," Fire Chief Mark Hartwig said. "Catching and convicting these criminals is a high priority."

CSUSB Celebrates Class Of 2017 At Commencement Exercises June 15 & 17

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — It’s their time.

After years of hard work in classrooms, a seemingly endless number of papers to write and nights of little sleep from studying for midterms and finals, Cal State San Bernardino’s Class of 2017 has one more hurdle to make before getting a degree — graduation.
