California Criminal Justice Programs

With over 40 million residents, California is one of the largest and most populous states in the nation. It is also home to many large and densely populated cities such as Los Angeles, San Diego, Sacrament, Sn Francisco and others. It should come as no surprise that California is also home to its fair amount of crime.

As of 2014, California had an annual crime rate of 4.23 violent crimes per 1,000 residents and 27.6 property crimes per 1,000 residents. The overall crime rate in California is 31.82, just slightly higher than the national average of 28.6.

With such a large and growing population, Califoria requires a strong criminal justice infrastructure to ensure the safety of its residents. Consequently, the need for more law enforcement officers and criminal justice professionals is never ending. Lawmakers and employers are also requiring more intensive training and education of police officers and criminal justice professionals they hire.

Earning a degree in criminal justice or acquiring advanced law enforcement training is the best way to prepare for a career in law enforcement in the state of California. An undergraduate degree offers students a well-rounded criminal justice curriculum. Courses taken often include counstitutional law, research, legal history, judicial systems, courts, corrections, ethics, writing and statistics. Many criminal justice programs in California also address broader issues including race, class, and social justice.

While most entry-level criminal justice professions do not require a masters degree, some do. Becoming a forensic accountant, investigator, fraud detective or manager often require a master's degree. A master's degree will also help set you apart from the competition and qualify you for various career advancement opportunities within your field.

California offers aspiring professionals one of the largest selections of top criminal justice programs. In fact, according to U.S. News ad World Report rankings, California law and criminal justice programs are among the top ranked programs in the nation. Many of California's criminal justice schools have training and recruitment relationships with local and regional law enforcement agencies and legal organizations.
