A few words from criminal justice students

“My career goal is to become a federal officer with either the Department of State or another agency within the Department of Justice framework. My degrees from Florida Tech will add on to my extensive knowledge base of safety and security measures, internal and external security, as well as personal security that I have accumulated while serving in the military.”

Online schooling made it very easy for me to obtain my goals, the hardest part was maintaining my full time job and other obligations but online schooling worked so well it never got in the way.
