As part of the program, Criminal Justice students will present a senior thesis. An academic challenge such as this, is not available to an undergraduate student at many other colleges and universities. Students have found that preparing their thesis also helped them narrow down their career focus and allowed them to be better prepared for job placement opportunities.
As part of the academic requirements, senior internship (typically taken during the summer between the junior and senior years) is also an important asset to future employment success. Our students often are able to intern with law enforcement agencies that they wish to work for. A few have had unique opportunities such as county marine patrol, Customs and Immigration, the court system, prosecutor’s offices and the like.
A strong program in a demanding field
The criminal justice is now demanding more academic preparation from the people employed in this field.
"Our small campus is inviting and really allows you to get to know other students as well as professors. All of my professors know who I am and care about my education just as much as I do." [ more ]
