    First off, your site has been extremely useful in helping me determine the path I want to take in my higher education.

    I’m 28 years old and considering going back to school. I’m currently working as a Senior Network Analyst at a cable company in Montana (I’ve been with this company for 7 years, but want to move on to something more in line with what I want to do).

    With that said, I’m aiming to join the Montana FWP in the hopes of becoming a Game Warden.

    Montana State University – Billings, offers a BS in Criminal Justice. — My question is, do you think it would be better to attend my local campus for this, or should I invest in going to an online school noted in your other articles? I want to try and stay in my state, but I realize that I may have to go elsewhere to find employment. It appears that the Montana FWP also has a trainee program for enrolled Montana college Juniors to help garner experience while getting the degree.

    Thanks for your input.

      Thanks Nick

      MSU Billings is a good school, but not extraordinary by any stretch. The in-state tuition is a big bonus here AND the possibility that this school may have some name recognition in your state.

      The other schools I mentioned elsewhere on my site, are firstly brick and mortar and have online offerings. They are not “online schools.” I want to make that clear.

      Schools like Penn State, Michigan State, Boston University, University of Cincinnati, Arizona State or University of California Irvine are very good or great schools overall AND all these have online programs, too. Their programs in CJ or Criminology are good to great (depending on the school). If you’re not sure about your plans on becoming a Game Warden in Montana will work out, or if you plan on possibly working out of state, I might go this route.

      Sorry I can’t give you a solid answer here. Let us know what you decide and I wish you all the best.
