You might be picturing chasing bad guys, arresting suspects and collecting evidence from a crime scene—in short, what you’ve seen police officers do on TV or in the movies.

But getting a criminal justice degree can actually mean so much more in terms of employment.1 Criminal justice programs might include courses on criminal law, forensics, criminology and victimology, communications, juvenile justice, ethics and more. This exciting field can prepare you for many different jobs that provide hands-on, out-of-the-office work.1
