Sometime’s people wonder “what can I do with my degree”? Today I am going to give some career options if you obtain a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college.

The most obvious choice would be a law enforcement officer. But it is not that simple. While some jobs in law enforcement require a bachelor’s some don’t. Some of the careers in law enforcement include:

  • Police Officers
  • Detectives and Investigators
  • Police Dispatchers

Another field of criminal justice is the court system. Some options could be:

  • Baliff
  • Prosecutor
  • Defense Attorney
  • Victim’s Advocate
  • Paralegal
  • legal secretary
  • Jury Consultant
  • Clerk

Some careers in Corrections can include:

  • Correctional Officer
  • Probation/Parole Officer

While a bachelor’s degree is not a guarantee, it is a great start into these fields.
