The Law and Justice Studies program prepares students for professional careers in four major areas: law enforcement and security services, court services, corrections, and human services. Since many of the students who enter the program express an interest in preparation for graduate study and professional schools, the program also offers majors the rigorous preparation necessary to achieve such goals. An internship in an appropriate criminal justice or related agency is required in order to provide students with experience, making their class work more meaningful.
