Discussion: A Changing Perspective on Your Degree

Throughout the course, you have read about society’s need for a criminal justice system and reviewed its key components, including law enforcement, the courts, and corrections. You have also examined how factors, such as mental health and technology, affect both public perceptions and the day-to-day work of a criminal justice professional. How has this learning changed you and your view of a criminal justice degree?

For this Discussion, you must reflect on how your expectations or goals related to the degree have shifted. To do so, you may find it beneficial to refer back to the Week 1 Journal.
