1 Thomas College Criminal Justice Programs Fall 2015

2 INTRODUCTION The purpose of this student handbook is to provide criminal justice majors with an overview of the various program opportunities in the Thomas College Criminal Justice Program. Students have a choice between two different four-year degree programs in Criminal Justice: Criminal Justice or Criminal Justice Administration. Each program is described in detail with course options and electives in this student handbook. The four-year criminal justice degree programs offer various law enforcement, courts, corrections, and private business internships which are available to qualifying students at state, municipal, county and federal organizations. One of the unique aspects of the Thomas Criminal Justice Program is its provision of practical experience and learning opportunities to each student in the program. A student is able to select an internship in his or her field of interest, attend the Maine Criminal Justice Academy Basic Law Enforcement Training Program, attend Maine s Basic Corrections Training Program, and/or attend the Law Enforcement Pre-Service Program. Good choices during your college experience will enhance career opportunities, so if you have any questions or concerns about the Criminal Justice Program or career possibilities, contact your advisor for information or clarification. 1

The Thomas College program in Criminal Justice offers students opportunities to diversify their background with additional courses in Forensic Psychology, Psychology, Sociology, Political Science, Forensic Accounting, or Cyber-Security. The program in Criminal Justice Administration offers a strong business core that introduces the student to administrative skills and functions essential for career opportunities and advancement. A distinctive feature for both degree programs is the student s opportunity to attend the eighteen-week Basic Law Enforcement Training Program at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy. In addition to the opportunity at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy, Criminal Justice majors at Thomas College have the opportunity to complete an internship. Some of the past internships completed by Thomas College students include the Drug Enforcement Agency, INTERPOL, the Department of Homeland Security, and many different state, local and county law enforcement and probation agencies throughout New England. Students who choose not to attend the Basic Law Enforcement Training Program at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy (MCJA) during their senior year will complete an internship through Career Services at Thomas College. If the Academy or an internship is not completed by the student, the student can choose to complete CJ403 Careers in Criminal Justice as an alternative. All three of these options are indicated in the program of study described in the Thomas College catalog. 4
