Criminal justice students have the opportunity to visit and learn about systems in China and the United Kingdom this summer through two study abroad programs offered by the College of Criminal Justice.
The program is designed specifically for criminal justice students, who will be able to earn three hours of college credit, while immersing themselves in the culture and landmarks of each destination.
The program in Scotland and England, open to both undergraduate and graduate students, will be led by criminal justice professor Mitchel Roth and will include visits to prisons such as Wandsworth–and Pentonville, the oldest working British prison–as well as tours of museums, the Tower of London, Parliament, and Old Bailey.
Interested students should 936.294.1649.
Assistant professor of criminal justice Yan Zhang will lead the trip to China, also open to undergraduate or graduate students.
This trip will provide criminal justice students with an overview of China’s law enforcement system and will explore historical and contemporary policing issues by participating in exchanges with police cadets, interacting with police professionals, and visiting major and local police departments.
Students interested in visiting China should call 936.294.3034.
To reserve a spot in the study abroad classes, students must complete an application and provide a $100 non-refundable deposit by April 1.
The application is available online at cjcenter.org/abroad/apply.html.
