Can you tell me anything about Criminal Justice?

I was wondering if people could give me some advice. I am going to start my college career soon and I was thinking about becoming a criminologist. Though I don' t know if I should major in physiology/sociology or major in criminal justice. What would I study in college if I decided to get a major in criminal justice, I don't know a lot about it unfortunately. Also what are some other fun jobs in criminal justice. I would be happy with any info about it i am pretty uninformed! Thanks a lot!
