Many people come to college without a major They just assume that they will choose one eventually Fortunately for me I knew coming into college what I wanted to do criminal justice My family has a history in law enforcement and I want to carry on this tradition I would like to do this by becoming a lawyer a big part of this field I find this career interesting but the road to becoming a lawyer is long and bumpyWhen studying to become a lawyer you must first achieve at least a bachelors degree in college You must also obtain this degree with a competitive grade point average to get into law school You must then apply to law school The law school will require you to take a placement test called the LSAT No pre law undergraduate programs exist at USC so you can decide your own major when trying to obtain the degree Many classes are important when pursuing law as a career Some of these are philosophy government english theater speech and criminal justice just to name a few These classes prepare you best for the field and also contain certain portions of the job It is important to pick a major that will help you when attending law school or if you find yourself as an unemployed lawyerSince 1990 an over supply of lawyers has emerged The job market increases twenty-five percent each year but that is not enough to employ all of the law school graduates This means many lawyers find themselves waiting tables in restaurants with a useless degree I do not want to end up like this if I graduate from law school and this is the reason I have chosen to major in criminal justice It will give me a practical degree and I can get it here at USCA degree in criminal justice can be obtained through the College of Criminal Justice They offer a Bachelor
