Criminal Justice Bachelor's Degrees

There are many reasons that people choose to go into the legal field or into law enforcement, but no matter which career you choose in these fields, you will always know that you are doing your community and country a great service. The Criminal Justice Bachelor Degree will prepare you for a professional career in this field, or will enable you to advance to a higher paying job with more responsibility in the justice organization that you already work for. There are job opportunities for people that hold a Criminal Justice Bachelor Degree in many different types of organizations, including correctional facilities, security companies, parole services and more. Although hands-on training is always a plus, there are now many online degree programs that will earn your education in this area, including programs at Kaplan University or Colorado Technical University.

If you choose to pursue a bachelor’s degree in this field, you will become eligible to apply for and be hired as an entry level employee in any of the various law enforcement or security fields. Research education requirements for specific criminal justice field careers can be found at our criminal justice career center page.

Those that choose to pursue an advanced education after high school should know that they are making an important investment in the type of life they will have in the future, as it isn’t uncommon for those with a bachelor’s to earn over thirty percent more than their counterparts.
