    Go to the websites for these agencies and look for their educational requirements.

    You should choose a major that interests you, that is marketable, and that could be useful for police work. Many people that want to become law enforcement officers choose criminal justice or something similar as their college major. However, many people would suggest choosing a different major. There are many good majors for law enforcement officers and people that want to become law enforcement officers. Accounting, computer science, a foreign language, and law are some examples. I would consider choosing a foreign language such as Spanish or a computer related major. When choosing a major, consider what you might want to do if you decide not to become a law enforcement officer or if you can’t become a law enforcement officer. It is great that you are planning on getting a degree. Getting a degree is one of the best things that you can do. Whatever major you choose, make the most of your time. For example, make sure to choose a school that is properly accredited and get the highest grade point average that you can. Getting law enforcement officer jobs is becoming more and more competitive. However, all else being equal, a candidate that is a veteran with a college degree has a very good chance of getting hired. Best of luck!

    Choose a Legit online college then inquire them what courses they could offer that is the best for FBI, etc. Or ask FBI/ATF offices their requirements in their manpower.
