Online Investigation Degrees and Careers

Are you looking for an exciting and challenging career path that involves intense focus, attention to detail, reasoning ability, and deduction? Does the prospect of a not-exactly-nine-to-five schedule sound enticing? If so, a job in the field of investigation may be everything that you are looking for.

In fields ranging from insurance to criminal justice, investigators are tasked with the responsibility of studying, scrutinizing, and, with luck, solving seemingly impenetrable mysteries and cases. Although the skills needed to carry out these tasks vary depending on the field one works in, a growing number of colleges, universities, and technical/vocational training centers now offer degree programs in investigation that instill the basic concepts, practices, and techniques students need to succeed in this type of career.

Education & Career Opportunities in Investigation

According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, opportunities in the investigation field are expected to grow at a rate that far exceeds the average through at least 2018. Roughly one-fifth of those who have jobs in the investigation field are self-employed, and because competition for top positions is likely to be fierce, the best opportunities in the field are likely to go to candidates who have some training at the college level.
