Meet the Practicum Coordinators!


As part of the Criminal Justice major, students will participate in an unpaid practicum experience (CJ 407 & CJ 409). The practicum requires 400 hours of professional experience in an agency related to the criminal justice field. This practicum is completed during spring and/or summer terms, toward the end of a student’s program of study. For more information regarding the practicum, please see Practicum Requirements. Students must submit a Practicum Placement Application at least three terms prior to taking the practicum.
