Internship opportunities

Internships provide you with critical opportunities to learn more about careers you are interested in pursuing while also obtaining a deeper understanding of our coursework. Internships also allow you to build a strong professional network, opening doors for potential job opportunities after graduation.

Service learning

Engaging the community is a key aspect of our Criminal Justice curriculum. Many of our courses incorporate a service-learning aspect, allowing you to work with organizations both on and off campus and apply your learning to serve the community. Past service-learning projects include researching the racial climate on campus and the impacts of Macon’s revitalization effort on various areas of society.
