What if justice really was for all?

Ryan Warren, a criminal justice major, recently interned with the U.S. Marshals Service.

Warren says the experience was a once in a lifetime opportunity. “The agents were incredible to work with and allowed me to see the ins and outs of their many different jobs.”

With plans to be a lawyer, Warren had the opportunity to see jury trials and observe investigations with deputies. She also saw the day-to-day work of federal agents, judges, and lawyers.

The newly formed Department of Criminal Justice, Social Work, and Sociology was developed to give students the opportunity to collaborate with disciplines that often cross over in the industry. With this, students are better able to build critical thinking, research, writing, and oral communication skills. According to Dr. Jeremy Ball, chair of the department, these are the overarching skills all employers in the fields of criminal justice, social work, and sociology seek in a new employee.

It is the department’s priority to bring experiential learning opportunities directly to campus. Each spring, the department hosts Criminal Justice Week including guest speakers, demonstrations, and an agency appreciation banquet to provide students interactive and educational opportunities to learn about the criminal justice field and careers.
