Explore Opportunities

What can you do?

Finding incredible opportunities during your time at UWEC is an easy feat. While being in the criminal justice program you’ll have the chance to do internships with local police departments, justice centers and more. You can take time to study abroad in various countries, work closely with a faculty member on collaborative research or travel to an inner-city to immerse yourself in a culture unlike your own. You can embrace one of these opportunities or as many as you like. To put it simply — your journey goes far beyond the classroom.
