I know that I have seen some folks here have degrees in Criminology or related areas so I am hoping for some insight. For the first time in a long time, my 16 year old son expressed interest in going to college for Criminology. He is very interested in history and why people do what they do. He enjoys watching videos about solving crimes. At one point, I thought he could be a good prosecutor just based on his interests and the way he can argue a point with solid facts. But with ADHD, he is not the best student - so Law school is probably a stretch. We pulled up some random course guides for criminology and criminal justice to see what might be typical of the programs. For now, I have suggested he take electives in high school for Psychology, Forensics, Criminal Law, Sociology, and Intro to Criminal Justice. He probably won’t be able to take all of those, but taking some should help him figure out if that is a path he wants to take. We mentioned it to my husband who is a police lieutenant and he said it was a waste of time to get a degree in criminology and he should just get a business degree. Well, he has zero interest in that right now. Of course, his interests may change, but I’d like to encourage him to explore the options. Any insights from those that KNOW the field? Like what jobs could that lead to?
