1. Why are you pursuing your degree? What are your career goals and how will this degree help you achieve them?

The purpose of me pursuing a Masters in Psychology is to combine it with my Bachelors in Criminal Justice and work in law enforcement as a criminologist. This is where you get inside the mind of a criminal and predict what their next step is going to be, similar to the show criminal minds.

My career goals are; finish this master's program, move to the south hopefully Texas or Georgia and find job placement with the local law enforcement agency or even the FBI. I am not interested in policing, so I don't want to waste my time trying to be a police officer to work my way up to where I want to be in the long run. My ultimate goal is to just find happiness in my career, because like they say if you find a career you love doing than you never work a day in your life.

This degree will help me achieve my goals because the job requirements state one must hold bachelors in criminal justice or psychology and masters in the opposite. Most people do not continue on with their schooling past a bachelors, so when a company sees an individual committed to their education they recognize their loyalty and commitment and offer job placement.
