Online Degree Programs in Criminal Justice Help You Help Others

By Joe Aguilar

If you don’t want to be stuck in a boring career and you want to help others get their lives on track, check out probation officer career options. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that a large number of probation officers are expected to retire in the coming years. A criminal justice degree can open up great probation officer career options.

Probation Officers have Rewarding Opportunities

With a large number of jobs expected to open up due to the retirement of existing probation officers, your chances of landing a good job as a probation officer may never be better. Probation officers often work flexible schedules and many spend time out of the office. Although working conditions can be demanding, many probation officers find the work to be especially rewarding. Getting your master’s degree in criminal justice can help prepare you to be competitive in this career. The BLS notes that a graduate degree, such as a master’s degree in criminal justice, can help improve job prospects and possibilities for advancement.

Going Online for your Master’s Degree Puts the Focus on You

These days it’s hard enough to make it through the work week without having to journey to a school campus for your degree. If you have a family, you know that time at home is especially valuable. Online degree programs provide the opportunity to go to school from the comfort of your home—and on your own schedule. Learning criminal justice for a career as a probation officer has never been so convenient.
