If you thrive on helping other people, you might consider a career in criminal justice. The Criminal Justice Careers Program offers preparation for a broad range of career opportunities in the expanding Criminal Justice field. Careers in criminal justice offer interesting and intense work and provide high pay and excellent benefits and retirement programs.
