Forbes reported earlier this year that “criminal justice is a broad and rapidly evolving field that offers diverse career opportunities in both the public and private sectors, including law enforcement, policymaking, corrections counseling and victim advocacy. Many careers in criminal justice encompass elements of law, public safety and behavioral sciences, such as sociology or psychology.”
