Tip of the Week

Criminologists often work in university settings,either conducting research and/or teaching. If you are interested in working on this level, however, it will be necessary to obtain a PhD in Criminology. Other potential areas of work could include working for independent agencies or government agencies. Areas of study generally include information on psychology, sociology, and deviant behavior patterns.

Criminal psychologists are almost always expected to obtain a doctorate in the field. This role is generally a support role in helping criminal investigation teams (through direct practice or research) to understand the thought-processes and behavioral patterns of criminal behavior. Even though criminal psychologists require certification and a significant amount of educaition, there is no guarantee that you will make a significant amount of money upon graduation.
