Daniel’s Answer

Yes, there are often a few different options for criminal justice. You can focus on the forensic side of things (think finger prints, dna testing etc) that often are heavily science based. There are also majors on the legal side of things like criminal law etc in which you could become a lawyer, or still do a more criminal justice type role. There is also the more generic criminal justice major that encompasses everything. If you go to a school that specializes in criminal justice you can also find very specialized degrees such as large cases, federal criminal justice, criminology, behavioral science etc.

Great question. Most CJ programs offer different areas of focus. Law and courts, law enforcement, corrections, behavioral or forensic science, etc. This allows for multiple options as you get further along in the program at your school of choice. You could also consider areas of emphasis that may be better suited for a role as an insurance claim investigator. With a growing number of insurance professionals approaching retirement, there will be more and more opportunities in these areas. Good luck!
