My major is Criminal Justice and I absolutely love what I get to learn about in each of my classes. Growing up, I loved watching law and order and NCIS and shows like that so I have always had some interest in law enforcement and how it worked.
Even though you learn in college that what you see on TV isn't exactly how it s in real life, it is still very exciting and interesting to learn about. I get to learn about why police do what they do, why people commit crimes (and believe me there are A LOT of reasons), how court rooms work, and what goes on in prisons. This is just a brief overview of the type of things you get to learn but trust me when I say you get to look at the criminal justice system from all angles. I love this major not just because of my background growing up, but because of all the knowledge I have obtained about the criminal justice system, which impacts everyone in some way. It is cool to see things that go on around the country and understand why things happen a certain way whether it is with police, courts, or corrections. Also I have to admit...it is pretty cool to see an episode of law and order and know what they are talking about.
