While the country’s economic climate continues to flounder, and with numerous job opportunities drying up, countless people have already been forced into switching occupations. A particular field that will keep growing, however, is criminology. There is absolutely no lack of crime.

For that reason, you may be surprised how many diverse careers are available in the criminology sphere. There are lots of positions that fit into the genre of criminology. One of the obvious are law enforcement and surveillance areas. These types typically don’t involve any kind of higher education allowing it to be started with minimal credentials. Other less visible careers in criminology would be forensic science and criminal psychology.

These job areas traditionally require a higher educational background such as a bachelor’s degree or masters degree. No matter which field one decides on, criminology professions can be interesting and fulfilling.
