There are two ways you can get out of debt and be financially free: you can cut your expenses or raise your income (or find new sources of income altogether). Pursuing a higher degree and starting a new career in a rewarding field are great solutions for increasing your income. Criminal justice is a particularly interesting field to get into for a number of reasons.
First of all, top names such as Portland State University are making their criminal justice programs more accessible than ever. Careers in criminal justice are also very flexible. Some, such as working as a youth counselor, can even be done while maintaining a career in other fields; this gives you the ability to maintain multiple sources of income. Last but certainly not least, top careers for criminal justice grads are very rewarding, both financially and personally.

As the infographic shows, there are a number of career opportunities available to criminology and criminal justice students. However, it is important to consider the quality of education and the reputation of the school offering the course. As most people can attest to, employers tend to put weight on the educational institution from which an applicant graduated from. While the school factor can never sum up the actual capabilities of a person, having a reputable school to mention in one’s resume can provide considerable impact, all else being equal among applicants.
Choosing the right school also avoids the possibility of time and money wastage when one does not get the quality education expected. It is a fact the most online students are very busy people who simply want to get access to learning in spite of work and family responsibilities. It would be such a huge letdown to end up with sub par education.
