All About a Criminalistics Degree

A Criminalistics degree will encompass all the ways in which our government protects individuals from crime: by maintaining order, deterring crime, and bringing those who commit crime to justice. This includes public institutions such as the police force, the court system, and corrections.

A criminalistics degree will prepare you for any number of entry-level jobs in local, state, and Federal agencies. Or, it may be just what you need to advance in a career you've already established. Law enforcement and corrections are the most common careers for individuals with a criminal justice background, but many students opt to go into investigation, homeland security, public safety, or law and justice administration.
