Graduates from criminal justice schools in Alabama can work in many areas, from private security to loss prevention management. Paralegals, substance abuse counselors, police, private investigators, and corrections officers are also among those who apply the principles learned in criminal justice courses. While jobs in this area are likely to increase, successful applicants need to complete proper training. At the bachelor’s level, courses in this major include substance abuse treatment, criminal psychology, American criminal justice, victimology, contemporary issues in criminal justice, criminal law, court procedure, and the causes of crime. Associate’s degrees offer a pared-down, essentials-only version of the same course.
