This course operates as a professional development opportunity that is designed to assist undergraduates with the transition from student to professional in the criminology and criminal justice fields. Students are exposed to the various career paths and options available through experiential learning activities, guest speakers, readings, and assignments. Specifically, careers in federal, state, and local agencies, as well as graduate/law school processes are addressed. Emphasis is also placed on the development of job seeking skills and strategies such as: building experience during undergraduate education, application processes (for jobs and graduate/law schools), cover letter/resume writing, network building, interview preparation, and creating a professional online presence.
