A postsecondary education may be necessary for an individual who is attempting to enter a career in criminal justice. However, many people do not have the time to obtain a degree on a traditional campus. Some Online colleges are helping more individuals earn a postsecondary education and embark on the career path of their choice.
For instance, the University of Phoenix announced that it will begin offering a new college of criminal justice and security. The program will help individuals interested who are in learning more about the field and earning an associate's, bachelor's or master's degree to advance their careers.
"Tomorrow's leaders in criminal justice and security …will influence how information is shared across agencies and how best to ensure the safety and security of people and assets," said James Ness, the dean of the new college "This is why a well-educated workforce is needed in fields related to criminal justice and why it has now become an urgent national priority."
The average salary for students who graduated with bachelor's degrees or higher in 2008 was $45,000 per year, according to the U.S. Department of Education. A postsecondary education may not only help an individual get the job of their choice, but financially support their loved ones as well.
