Criminal Justice Cultural Immersion

Change of perspective

Many of our Blugolds seek opportunities to learn about other cultures. You can be in new surroundings while getting a better understanding of the different cultures in our world by doing a cultural immersion trip. Ranging from a week to semester-long, these faculty-led experiences focus on a variety of interesting topics. No matter where you go and what you learn, you’ll gain life-changing perspectives.
