What Are My Career Opportunities?

Employment prospects for criminal justice graduates appear favorable because of the unfortunate fact that crime exists and continues to be one of our major social problems, necessitating more services that ensure the safety of our society.

Additionally, the criminal justice field will continue to be affected by new advances in technology, adding increased job opportunities for trained personnel who can apply their technical skills and knowledge to crime prevention and detection. Qualified women and minorities, previously under-represented in this field, can expect to be actively recruited.
