Criminal Justice and minor in science or business

<p>If I major in Criminal Justice and minor in science or business what are the chance of getting in careers that investigate or prosecute White Collar Crime or in the fields of forensics? Also, if I minor in accounting, marketing, business, or management what are the chance for me to get in the job in business field or I dont work in the Criminal Justice system</p>

<p>If you want to get into forensic science, then major in a relevant science; a minor won't do it.If you want to go into investigation of white collar crime, then get a major in accounting with some finance courses; a minor won't do it. A law degree might be helpful too. (BTW, CJ majors are not among the highest scoring majors on the LSAT). In other words, for these specialized areas, don't do your major in criminal justice, unless it's a second major.</p>

<p>You can get a job in business with a minor in a business field, though many employers for jobs straight out of school will prefer a major. I'm not sure, however, that a major in CJ is the best possible background, even with a minor in a business field.h</p>

<p>Im currently in community college and I took most of my CJ classes for lower division. I cant switch to science or business major since I only took 1 or 2 classes in those areas and I already applied to 4 California State University schools for CJ. So I'm kinda of stuck with getting a degree in CJ. What kind of career jobs are there for CJ majors besides law enforcement or is that the only one?</p>

<p>I hope that if I cant get a job in CJ field, that business minor degree will help me get a job in the business field</p>

<p>Hey,</p>

<p>I was a CJ Major at a Cal State University. I don't think you're going to get credit for any CJ classes taken at a community college. The major has upper division requirements ONLY! Your credits may be used as electives though.</p>

<p>Talk to an advisor at a CSU. I'm not trying to discourage you. However, if the only thing stopping you from becoming a business major is that you took CJ courses at a community college, then you have been given misinformation.</p>

<p>If you have completed the CSU breadth (including the Golden Four), you should be fine to transfer into any major.</p>
