Online Law & Criminal Justice Degrees and Careers


A criminal justice degree could be the ideal education for those considering a career in law enforcement. Graduation from law school could also help current employees with career progression.

Prospective candidates will need to have good interpersonal skills and plenty of patience. This is particularly important in the event of having to deal with aggressive or emotionally upset members of the public or convicted felons. Students of a criminal justice degree can usually specialize in certain areas in order to aid their application to areas of law enforcement. These areas include highway patrol, sheriff's offices, customs and duty, immigration offices, state penitentiaries, young offender institutions or even private detective agencies.

A previous criminal history will generally exclude individuals from being accepted into a criminal justice degree program or indeed any career requiring law school training. Courses may include law, restraint techniques, ethics, report writing, probation, corrections, and basic criminal psychology.
