So ive been struggling for a while on what degree to go with..I feel for me criminal justice would be something I could handle and I LOVE law and im obsessed with any crime/law shows so I know it would interest me..but my concern is that the only thing I could do is be a cop. Nothing against that but I would rather try to get into an academy if I were to do that rather then shell out $40-$60k for a bachelors ..it just doesnt seem worth it to me. So im wondering if anyone on here has a degree in that area and are there other things I can do with it? Also my DH is in the military and we are stationed in the absolute no where and theres no where to work here and we will probably be stuck here for the rest of his career..so thats also a big factorAnswer Question

There are so many things you can do with a Bachelor's in Criminal Justice. I have a link that I will try to post in just a minute that shows all the different fields you can go into. Where is your husband stationed?

I am not sure about that post but I know that when my husband was in the Army there were several job openings for government positions (that were not military). With a Bachelor's degree, you could pretty much get any job with a few exceptions. I was majoring in Criminal Justice and I did an internship at a Child Abuse program. I worked with a lady who got her degree in Criminal Justice and she was a Forensic Interviewer (she interviewed the children that were abused to gather evidence for trial). There are so many endless possibilities.
