Study Abroad — Criminal Justice

WHY STUDY ABROAD? Living and studying in another country will make you a more culturally aware citizen and an internationally engaged professional. Criminal Justice is a truly global field. With every country having its own laws and justice systems, you can explore the similarity and differences in criminal justice practices, people and communities all over the world, and integrate that knowledge into your solutions, which is an important part of your Criminal Justice education.

Explore the Global Marketplace

"Global Appreciation" has emerged as an essential competency employers seek. Champlain has taken a proactive approach to cultivating this competency by ensuring that international learning is embedded in the College's curriculum.

Additionally, Champlain offers opportunities for every student to engage in a study-abroad experience. To that end, we designed the curriculum of our majors to support a semester of international study. What does this mean to you? You can study in another country, even complete an internship, and still graduate on time.

Living and studying in another country will make you a more culturally aware citizen, and an internationally engaged and cross-culturally sensitive professional.
