Corrections, probation, and parole jobs are an important part of our legal system. If you have an interest in supporting people who have fallen foul of the law, and the right sort of fair-but-firm personality, then this is a career area for you to consider.
If you wish to pursue a career in corrections, probation, and parole you will find that employers expect you to have a college degree. You have some choice in the program you select, but a degree in criminal justice, social work, or a similar field, should be ideal. If you are ambitious to advance in your career, a master’s degree will help you gain promotion to more senior positions.
