Student Opportunities

The Department of Criminal Justice offers students many opportunities to hone their skills and expand their career network.

Internship Program

The Academic Internship Program (CJ-397V) is for criminal justice majors with junior or senior standing. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.8 or higher and the consent of the department head before admission into the program. Students in the program earn credit while gaining real-world work experience in the criminal justice field through apprenticeships, cooperative education, job shadowing, and other planned experiences.

Criminal Justice Club

The Criminal Justice Club provides students with educational and networking opportunities in the academic, criminal justice, and law enforcement communities. It also facilitates training opportunities for those seeking to be a part of law enforcement personnel.

Criminal Justice Symposium

The annual Criminal Justice Symposium offers students the opportunity to hear well-known keynote speakers, participate in serious debates, and network with future potential employers and graduate schools.
