Through Colorado Christian University’s College of Adult and Graduate Studies (CAGS) we have seen it time and time again. People have accepted an unexpected career calling because they feel the need to serve. They feel an unquenchable thirst to lead those in need. One of those unexpected paths for you could be in Criminal Justice.
It could be just the path that is calling you to bring those who need it the most, to Christian philosophies. Gaining (entry level) jobs in criminal justice is not difficult. It WILL take a decision and commitment. You will have the steady hand of online faculty to help guide you through the program. These are faculty who have experience in the criminal justice system and have seen the direct effects of Christian based teachings.
Our online Criminal Justice Associate Degree program can provide you opportunities in various criminal justice fields. These include:
- law enforcement
- paralegal work
- transportation security
- private security
- computer forensics
In many cases, this work will help put you directly in contact with people when they need assistance the most. These are people who are often lost. They are searching for a new way of life. You could be the person to help show them the way. In any career choice you should consider the impact you can have on others, and the long term affect that will have on you. A job in the criminal justice system may not be exotic and it may not even initially be prestigious. It can lead to some incredibly personally satisfying experiences for those who see God’s way. It can provide a very good living and growth opportunities while giving you the opportunity to serve a greater purpose for many who may need it. It may even be a second chance for you after initially choosing a less rewarding career path.
The CAGS program is specially designed for adult students who may be busy with work and family commitments. How rewarding after all, is your busy lifestyle? As a student you will have direct access to professors who are experienced in the field. They can share testimony as to the direct effects of your career decision.
