CCJS Department Lecture Series
The CCJS lecture series (CCJS 399) is not happening in Fall of 2015 for the first time in decades. When offered, this course complements the academic training provided by the department. It is an excellent way to learn about the applied side of the disclipline of criminology and criminal justice studies and learn about internship openings. The class was originally created by CCJS students in the early days of the department who wanted to learn more about real world application. Their Facebook page is at https://www.facebook.com/ccjslectureseries.
