Criminal-justice

Criminal Justice

Criminal Justice majors study what it means to be a criminal and how justice is maintained when crimes are committed. It’s similar to a degree in Law Enforcement, except it doesn’t have the gun training and is more geared for what happens after the criminal is caught – the stuff that ha... Read more

Psychology

Do your parents ever say to you, “I don’t understand why you do that?” Then chances are they weren’t Psychology majors. A Psychology major studies why people do what they do.
Linguistics

Creative Writing is one of those fields where you don’t necessarily need a degree to get work, but at the same time you’d almost be crazy not to. Creative Writing majors learn the ins and outs of writing for different audiences, practicing different techniques and pushing themselves ... Read more
English

English

People joke that you can’t do anything with an English major, but that doesn’t stop it from being one of the most popular majors in the United States. Just about every college and university offers a degree in English, and truth be told it results in some pretty well-rounded, easily ... Read more
History

History

A History major studies the past and interprets information to form conclusions. While it’s important to know that in 1492 Columbus sailed the ocean blue, History majors tend to dig a little deeper. What were the conditions in 1492? What kinds of ships did they sail? Who made them? ... Read more
