Virginia Wesleyan College
Criminal Justice Major
Majoring in Criminal Justice
I plan on majoring in criminal jutice and minoring in psycology in college. With this major I plan on getting a bachelors degree in it and then get a job in the FBI as a special agent, criminal investigator. During my time at college I could possibly get an internship at the FBI academy in Quantico Virginia, which is only a little under 2 hours away from the school. After graduating from college I could possibly go back to school and get another degree in something else that can relate to my career, because in the job it is better to be diverse in what you do. A criminal justice major could take a different assortment of classes based on other things that they might like to do. But the basic criminal justice major takes classes such as: Introduction to Criminology, Criminology Theory, Law Enforcment, Introduction to Criminal Law, Legal Writing, Psycology, Sociology and Court Systems are just some possible classes. Student majoring in criminal justice explore every aspect of crime, the law and the justice system.
