If you are interested in obtaining a bachelors degree in criminal justice there are colleges in every state that will offer you this opportunity. You have the option to choose from Samford University's program in Paralegal Studies (in Birmingham, Alabama) to the State University of New York's Albany-based program in Criminal Justice to San Diego State University's program. The search options become not only a question of which specialties and schools that you find appealing, but also what kind of living environment is appealing, practical (socially, financially, job friendly), and what your time-line is. This will ensure that you obtain a degree from the criminal justice program that meets the majority of your needs and wants.
It is suggested that you select your top three schools in different parts of the country and really hone in your application process and your detailed research process to those schools. Select these three schools based on those same principles: quality of program, financial reality, potential for job opportunities, and social climate. Make a list of your most important expectations and needs and try to find a school that supplies those requirements first.
