I have a Bachelors degree from NMSU and looking into getting a MS, all in Criminal Justice. I graduated with honors, however most of my classes were online, therefore I did not make any connections with professors or was involved in campus activities. My main goal is to become a parole officer, but if you have no experience most places require a MS or a BA and experience which I do not posses. If I were to look into the MS program I am forced to do it online due to personal reasons and I can't help it but to be afraid. My BA online was extremely easy and I was told a MS is the opposite, plus I don't have anyone to write letters of recommendation. Financially, I am barely making it and have no idea where to apply with my degree since I have no experience other than my education. Currently, I am working as a caregiver which is extremely sad as I put so much effort to get my BA. I looked into ASU program and NMSU itself, but just looking at the requirements makes me afraid I wont make it. I graduated in Dec, 2016. I would appreciate any advise before I burn my head just thinking about it, thanks.
