When I toured the Trumbull County Prison, I got to visit the psych ward and the women’s ward as well as see some of the inmates play basketball.
Criminal Justice Internships and Hands-On Learning
Students who choose to major in criminal justice at the University Mount Union have ample opportunities to get “real-world” experience outside of the classroom. Getting involved in extracurricular opportunities will better prepare you for a successful career and graduate school.
Internships provide you the chance to go out into the workforce and gain practical experience, which is critical to finding a job after graduation. Mount Union students have the opportunity to intern in any number of branches that exist within this interesting and growing field of criminal justice. Students have interned with the following organizations:
- Police and probation departments
- County prosecutor’s and public defender’s offices
- State and private agencies that work with juvenile delinquency, spousal abuse and children
- The Washington Center Program (assignments in the Washington, D.C. area)
