Academic Advice

FIRST YEAR AND SOPHOMORE STUDENTS 

  • The earliest you can go abroad is the summer of your first year.
  • Students may fulfill General Education Foundation and Issues requirements abroad. 
  • Students taking at least 3 credits abroad will fulfill their Global Perspectives requirement.

 

GENERAL ADVICE

  • Students may take courses that satisfy some requirements in their Criminal Justice major or the General Education program. Be sure to begin planning at least six months in advance.
  • Students do not need to speak a foreign language in order to study in a country where English is not the official language. Take advantage of your newly honed language skills and seize the opportunity to do an internship at a company or cultural organization at the end of your time abroad.
  • Courses should explore issues in crime and justice, policies of crime prevention, as well as issues in policing and criminal law.
