Central to the educational experience of a criminal justice major is the opportunity to compare theory and knowledge acquired in the classroom with practical experience and knowledge gained in a criminal justice agency.
All undergraduate criminal justice students are required to participate in an approved internship during their senior year.
The West Indies Study Abroad Program offers a 3-week overseas academic adventure on the exotic tropical islands of Trinidad & Tobago. The program provides an opportunity for students to increase their cross-cultural awareness, understanding and appreciation for the way of life in the Caribbean. Students study crime and justice from an international, comparative perspective and examine public policy issues.
Undergraduate Student Association
The Criminal Justice Student Association (CJSA) seeks to promote knowledge and the understanding of crime and justice. We provide a forum that facilitates interaction between students, faculty, program alumni, professionals employed in the field, and members of the broader community. The CJSA is open to all GSU students who are interested in crime and criminal justice issues.
Graduate Student Association
The Criminal Justice Graduate Student Association will assist members with adjustment into the Criminal Justice Graduate Program, act as student-faculty liaisons for the purpose of addressing student body concerns, organize events designed to promote graduate research, encourage student involvement in academic and social events within the Department of Criminal Justice and Criminology, and assist graduating students in transitioning into graduate careers.
