Degree/Course of Study
Match to Occupations: Security and Protective Services

Check out the occupations that match up with a particular degree/course of study. See how many openings those occupations are projected to have per year until 2014 to give you an idea of how competitive you need to be in order to secure the career you are pursuing. Also, see the minimum degree (e.g. Associate, Bachelor's, Master's, etc.) that is required for the occupation you are considering by looking at the Minimum Degree Level.

In this classification system the education and training required reflects the manner in which most workers become proficient in that occupation and the preferences of most employers.

The Annual Projected openings include estimates for new and replacement jobs. Visit the California Employment Development Department Labor Market Information website for additional information.

Cells with N/A reflect the fact that California colleges did not grant a degree matched to that course of study in the most recent year.
