Before you can answer this question you have to ask yourself what particular career in criminal justice you want? There are many and choosing one is not easy at all.
You could be inspired by Dirty Harry and want to become a tough cop. Then you will not only have to go through the Police Academy but you may also need a bachelor’s in say law enforcement or in forensic psychology.
On the other hand, if you are more inspired by Discovery Channel and AXN docu-fictions on crime investigation, you will dream of majoring in crime scene investigation or forensic science.
If 9/11 sparked a concern in your mind as to how important are those who help save innocent lives, you may be craving for a degree in homeland security or public safety management
