Employment Opportunities

Due to social, political and policy trends, employment in criminology/law enforcement is a growth field and will remain so. Venues for employment occur in both the private sector (corporate security) and the public sector (government departments and agencies at all levels, including municipal, county, state and federal). Moreover, law enforcement transcends shift patrol to include juvenile and parole supervision, the enforcement of conservation and fish and game laws administered by departments of natural resources, public health and safety statutes administered by county and state health departments, and even forensic investigation occurring both in the field and in the lab. As departments of law enforcement expand, so do their demands for budget analysis, planning, data analysis, technology, public relations, human resources and personnel administration. Employment in law enforcement does not always mean carrying a firearm. Hence, Criminology is relevant to a wide array of majors, including Biology, Business, Computer Information Systems, Health, any of the Social Sciences, and many more.
