Do you love reading mystery novels? Have you seen every episode of CSI and 24 at least once? If you answered yes to both of those questions, criminal justice is right up your alley.
In an investigation, forensic science or computer forensics program, you will learn to research and analyze information and evidence, interview witnesses and use digital evidence to solve crimes. A court reporting program will teach you how to transcribe court proceedings and prepare the transcriptions for use by judges and lawyers. Another unique job a court reporting program can lead to is providing real-time closed captioning for television stations.
Fight Crime Outside the Courtroom
If you would rather work outside the courtroom to bring justice to criminals consider a corrections program which will prepare you to work in a prison or as a parole officer, or a criminal justice studies program, which will prepare you to become a police officer or investigator. If you are interested in preventing terrorist attacks and making the US a safer place, you might want to explore a homeland security or law enforcement program.
