When I first started college, my academic goals were to learn as much as possible, join a Christian fellowship, get into the criminal justice program, decide whether or not to go to graduate school, and to graduate in four years. In addition, to also to either get a job or get accepted into an internship. My overall goal was to enjoy and make the most out of my college experience. My career goals back when I was a freshman, were to figure out if I want to join law enforcement or go to law school and find a job in the field of criminal justice, while being happy working the job. Over the course of two years, some of those goals have been achieved and some goals have been changed.
There will always be a fight for justice, and where there is crime there are those who must solve them. I wish to pursue a career in the criminal justice industry, mainly working as a forensic science criminalist. Those who use scientific logic and evidence found at the scene of the crime to solve the case, The heroes who don’t wear the labcoats instead of the black and blues. Heroes like these need certain skills, interests, and values that make them an official criminalist.
Choosing a college is a challenging decision but a pathway to your future, in which makes it important to choose wisely. To choose a college of your liking you must rank your priorities, compare your financial aid packages, focus on your endgame, and also revisit your short list. These steps will most likely guide you to find the perfect college/ university for you. I've decided to choose “Texas A&M University school of law” in which is located in Fortworth, Tx. This university has had a 19.68% percentage of applicants who've been admitted and also has diversities of white(64.4%) and hispanics(21.8%). To live within the University a room can cost up to $20,000 , tuition can cost up to $28,000 , loans $208, and supplies $2,400 adding up to an amount of $50,700 in total. Texas A&M has a 8.4:1 student-teacher ratio meaning it wouldn’t be as populated as other colleges would be making it a great environment to focus. In Texas A&M , within criminal law , there are “Cynthia Alkon, and Amber Baylor” instructors in which I'd love to meet. Quality within this school is great, it's a good campus, good quality of tech, rooms, etc.
The question you are asked by every adult at least once in your life time, “Where are you going to college?”, or in Texas, “U.T. or A.T.M.?” For most, it is a simple answer, but for me. Neither UT nor ATM would slingshot me into a career of Law Enforcement. Only Sam Houston State University will do.
Growing up I was always dealing with adversity. First it was my father needing surgery for his back. Later, resulted in him becoming disabled and being out of a job. Then, I was getting bullied along with my friends. After a while of this, I had enough of being defenseless and started to stand up for myself and them. This was what motivated me to want to pursue a career in Criminal Justice. I wanted to protect people from the wrong-doing of others because I knew what it felt like to be in that situation. The only difference between them and me is, I’ll always be there for them when there is a cry for help.
A criminal justice degree is an academic program that studies criminal behaviors in relation to law enforcement, communities and the legal and court systems. Students learn about crime prevention methods and that agencies that promote safety and lawful behavior.
I feel that a career in one of the armed forces would also get me ready for my FBI career, and other things later. I would like to achieve a rank of Lieutenant in the Navy after coming out of Annapolis. I will then work on my career there and then pay of as much debt as I can, if I have any. I will then continue my service as long is it is required in the navy or go on until I feel accomplished. After I have completed my service in the Navy, I will then go on towards a degree in Criminal Justice. As a required aspect of being an agent, you have to have a degree in Criminal Justice. I will probably work on this at a university in Virginia or anywhere available. After getting the degree, I will head straight for
As a Criminal Justice graduate student, I had the opportunity to examine various facets of the judicial system. In my quest to find the area that I felt I could make the most profound impact, I discovered that the Criminal Justice field and Social Work frequently intertwine. With the realization of this knowledge, I decided to procure the Masters of Science in Social Administration as to provide me with the credentials needed to serve beyond the scope of what my MSCJ allotted. By receiving an MSSA, I will have more career opportunities as I would possess the qualifications to be eligible for LSW licensing and the latter, LISW licensing, thus placing me in occupational settings that are conducive to my career goals. It is my desire to incorporate
I really enjoyed your post. You always manage to answer the questions without having to explain to much in detail. You stay on topic, and you never like opinions get in the way of your writing. I can tell that you must be really passionate about criminal courts. Do you plan on pursuing a career within Criminal law one day after graduation or an internship?
Higher education has become more valuable in many occupations and careers. Law enforcement is one of them, even though it is a slow transition from not requiring college education. Some of the requirements for a law enforcement officer is to have advanced writing skills, think critically, work in a high-pressure environment, and effectively communicate with citizens that they are protecting and serving. These skills can be learned on a job through training and experience, but they are also thought in college through homework, exercises, communication with other students, and required reading material by professors. When hiring college graduates with a four-year degree, they already possess many of the qualities and attributes that are highly
When I was in high school my English teacher had us look for a career we wanted to do for the rest of life. I knew I didn't want an office job from 9-5 everyday. I want a job that I could be proud of and enjoy doing everyday. That's why I decided I wanted to work for the FBI. In order for me to get this job I will need a bachelor's degree in either a STEM field, Psychology, Business, or Criminal Justice. I chose Criminal Justice because it interest me the most and wanted to learn more about the laws and criminal system of the US. The other majors didn't interest me or I felt wouldn't really help me be prepared for the FBI. I feel that a bachelors in Criminal Justice will better help me when I get my career. I will also be working on a minor
I would like to express my interest in the Investigator Level 1 position at the New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB). My enthusiasm for public interest, particularly addressing criminal justice issues, has motivated me to pursue career opportunities in research and law. Although my most recent roles did not turn out as I expected, I gained transferable skills and learned that I could build my public service career in a field besides law, like public administration. I believe that my prior work experience and interest in policy and inspection and oversight related to criminal justice make me an ideal candidate to join CCRB’s investigative staff.
My major is criminal justice. I chose it because it is a field that has always fascinated me, and I want to work in law enforcement. I have a deep rooted love for law and order and for serving my fellow citizens. I have had some experiences reading and writing in the criminal justice field. I have worked for the last 4 years with a team who train local, state and federal law enforcement officers in intelligence analysis. The trainings that we conduct focus heavily on both reading and writing intelligence documents so I have been exposed to those type of documents. When I am working in the field, I expect to do a variety of reading and writing that include law enforcement training materials, criminal investigation reports, intelligence reports
Every since my Freshmen year of high school, I have been pursuing an interest in a career in law enforce, and I believe this program would be greatly beneficial towards my pursuit in this career field.Throughout this paper I will tell you about my goal for both my professional and personal life, what I am hoping to accomplish during my time with the program and to give back, and what makes me different from the other applicants of the program.
A criminal career is defined according to the (NAS) US National Academy of Sciences Panel on Criminal Career Research, as a “longitudinal sequence of crimes that have been committed by individual offenders.” ( Schmalleger pg. 199)
