Hello Galicia. I did some internet research and there are a lot of good websites that allow you to research the criminal justice/law enforcement degrees available at various colleges. Here are some:
By searching sites such as these you can get an idea of the schools you might be interested in. You can do further research on the websites of the schools to get more information about their programs. There may be Facebook pages for these schools where you can post questions about the criminal justice/law enforcement programs and receive input from current students.
Jeanette recommends the following next steps:
- Research the websites listed above to learn more about criminal justice/law enforcement programs offered at various schools.
- Make a list of the schools that appeal the most to you then get on the website of each school to find out more about their criminal justice/law enforcement programs.
- Research Facebook to see if there are Facebook pages for the schools you are interested in. Post inquiries about the criminal justice/law enforcement programs to get feedback from students.
- If your school has a job shadowing day or program look into job shadowing someone who works in the criminal justice/law enforcement field.
- Research the websites of various types of law enforcement agencies to get more information about various job positions and the job qualifications and career opportunities. 6. Look into opportunities to do an internship a law enforcment agency.
