Online Criminal Justice Degrees - The Time Is Now

Aug 17, 2008
Come close! I want to share a few secrets with you.

Come closer! I don't want too many people to hear this.

OK! Close enough.

I know the anticipation is killing you. You have to promise not to share these secrets with too many people.

Promise?

OK!

If you have been aspiring to get a degree in criminal justice, this is the perfect time for it. You will only be hurting yourself in the long run if you continue to put it off.

Why you ask?

There are three main reasons why you should embark on getting your criminal justice degree right now. In this article, I will share those three main reasons.

They are as follows:

1. The Bad Economy

You must be wondering what the bad economy has to do with getting a degree in criminal justice. This is one of the big secrets. One famous investor said money is made in investing when there is blood in the Street.

This same principle is applied in education. When the economy is bad, smart people get more education.

Why fight for the few jobs that are available out there. All you need to do is take advantage of all the opportunities you have to get more education. Look into grants, scholarships, employer sponsored educational opportunities, to name a few, to get yourself more education.

If you have high school diploma, get a certificate or associate degree. If you have an associate degree, get a bachelor's degree. If you have a bachelor's degree, get a masters degree. I think you get the point.

You see, the education you get while the economy is bad will make you a hot commodity when the economy turns around. With economic turnaround, layoffs become hiring frenzy. With the increase in economic activities, employers can not find enough qualified people to fill their vacancies. The people with the right education will have money thrown at them by employers. You will reap the benefits of the time and money you invested into getting more education.

2. You can do it online

People are taking advantage of this big time. With gas prices over $4 per gallon, a lot of people have simply chosen to get their degrees through distance learning.

And why not?

The gas money you save can pay for a few credits online. You can not just brush this off any more. Years ago, some people would trade the price of commute for the chance to interact with others in the classroom. Not anymore. The gas price has made the choice easier for them.

3. Security Will Remain Paramount

There will be no going back on the need to keep America and Americans safe. This is why a criminal justice degree will be one of best professions to get into right now.

As long as there are people out there trying to hurt Americans, the government will always have the need to have criminal justice professionals. The need may not seem as strong right now because of the depressed economy, but make no mistake about it the need is there.

This need will be greater when the depressed economy turns around. Private sectors will loosen their wallets to hiring more security people.

And who will they hire?

They will hire people with the right education and expertise. These people will command premium pay because of the demand that will be out there.

I could go on, but I believe I have made my point. If you are interested in getting a degree in criminal justice, stop sitting on the fence. This is as good a time as any to get started.
