Types of careers with a master's degree in criminal justice?
I’m working on my undergrad degree: a BA in Psychology with a minor in Criminal Justice. I know that I won’t be making the big bucks right out of college, so after I get some experience under my belt, I am considering going to graduate school.
My question is this: If I were to get an MA in Criminology and Criminal Justice, what would my career options be?
Also, I know psychology graduate degrees are EXTREMELY competitive. Are criminal justice graduate degrees just as difficult to attain?
My final question is how long would it take to get this MA? The website for my school says the program is 30 hours. I know that if it was undergrad I could do it in 2 full time and 1 part time semester, but does graduate school work the same way? Can you take 12 credit hours per semester, in general?
