CRJU 4909 - Field Experience and Practicum in Criminal Justice

Credits: 1 to 4

The practicum is an extension of the academic offerings for the criminal justice major. The practicum is offered to enhance a student’s academic experience through a program of observation, study, and participation in a selected criminal justice agency. A primary purpose of this program is to broaden the educational experience of participating students by giving them an opportunity to work with practitioners, resulting in the student developing a greater understanding and appreciation for the administration of justice. Students will correlate theory and practice and be stimulated to challenge, examine, question and analyze those issues to which they are exposed. Students are afforded the opportunity to formalize career goals. The program also exposes students to the requirements of employing agencies and offering the opportunity to meet those requirements.

Prerequisites: Criminal Justice major or minor.
