"The review of UMD's [OIEP-managed] master’s degree in Criminology and Criminal Justice (CCJ) with Nanjing Normal University's law school faculty indicates a high-quality and sustainable program...[with] clearly defined mission and goals, excellent facilities, and suitable student support services in both Nanjing and College Park.
