Choosing a Justice and Security School

Choosing a justice and security school or program can be a difficult and time-consuming choice. At first you will need to make many decisions: whether you wish to pursue a degree, diploma or certificate; study on a full-time or part-time basis; what majors and areas of specialization interest you; how important special features such as internships and facilities are to your decision; and the importance of cost, location and other factors. Once you have decided on these, you will still need to undertake a significant exploration and consultation to focus your interests and choice of a university, community or career college for justice and security.

Here is a step-by-step process to help you evaluate each school:

  • Visit the website of the university, college, institute or program department. Most institutions provide detailed information about their programs, such as which degrees/diplomas/certificates are offered, amount of tuition and fees, admission requirements and intake times, student demographics, faculty qualifications, industry experience and accomplishments, financial aid and more! Often the institution's website will provide a "Q&A" or FAQ page which will answer the most common questions about it and its programs.


  • Visit the university, college or institute. Many institutions have "open days" where high school students are invited to tour the campus for a day. Campus visits allow you to learn things that might not be obvious from a school's marketing materials, such as quality and size of facilities, campus lay-out, transportation and how it feels to be on campus. If the university, college or school is in your home-town or nearby, you can always take an informal tour on your own and visit the program department office to ask questions. Even if the university, college or school nearest you is not the one you are considering, an information-gathering visit can help you get a sense of what you are comparing your other choices to.


  • Speak with an admissions counselor or academic advisor: they have a thorough knowledge of the curriculum and study programs that can lend a perspective to your decisions, and sometimes lead you in new directions.


  • Research other sources of information. There is a wealth of things that you can do here:


    • If you know past graduates of the university, college, school or program, talk with them about their experiences while a student.

    • Confirm which governmental or other agencies have partnerships with the school and whether they recruit graduates from the institution on a regular basis.

    • Search the Internet for information on awards bestowed on and achievements by specific programs -- faculty honors, research grants, community service or international programs, etc.

    • Consult Facebook and other social networking sites that may provide testimonials and other student comments on specific justice and security programs and the universities, colleges or institutes that offer them.

    Then match these facts and figures against the justice and security schools that you are evaluating.
