Employment Opportunities

Students pursuing criminal justice at Albany State University will have a number of career options after graduation. Exposure to many of these opportunities will take place prior to graduation, upon placement in one of our practical experience internships. Many criminal justice jobs currently offer incentives to persons who possess a criminal justice degree upon employment. With a criminal justice degree, students will have the opportunity to pursue local, state, and federal jobs. Jobs with the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Marshall’s Service, Immigration, Internal Revenue, Department of Natural Resources, U.S. Post Office, and Department of Juvenile Justice are just a few of the opportunities that will be within our graduates’ reach.
