What's a good job for women in criminology

All of them.


Let the FCC know that you want net neutrality. Follow the link to learn how. Took me less than 30 seconds.

The real estate app Trulia has a crime heat map feature. This is great for spotting crime hot spots. What do these red hot spots have in common besides higher crime rates?

Here are some crime rate charts I made for one of my assignments.  These are based on FBI UCR data - thus only reported crime, except for the last chart, Violent Victimization by Age, which is based on NCVS data.

Hi, I'm starting my criminology degree in the fall and I'm very worried about getting a job. Because I'm not very keen on becoming a police officer. What are some career choices that aren't a police officer ?

Probation, parole, social services, private investigation, private security, government research, or even something completely unrelated. It’s a good education for developing critical thinking. Employers will love you.

Hey, I'm interested in serial killers. Any way I was wondering what should I do so I can become a profiler , analyzing the behavior of killers? Thank you in advance.

There are very few people who have full time jobs as criminal profilers. Most have graduate degrees in psychology or criminology and law enforcement experience. Check out a forensic psychology textbook at your library and read through it to see if you’re interested in the content.

Criminal Profiling by Brent Turvey is a good textbook for dispelling the myths. That’s the text I use when I teach profiling. Take a look at it for more information.
