An important component of the Justice Studies curriculum is for students to gain real-world experience in the field, typically focusing on advocacy for community justice and the ethics that inform those practices. This component is formalized when students enroll in JUST 350—Field Work Seminar, which includes a 200-hour internship with an agency or organization of their choice. In order to enroll in JUST 350, students must have completed the JUST 345 Practicum course and its prerequisites, as well as a minimum of four electives (12 hours) in Justice Studies.
It is strongly advised that students do not wait until the beginning of the Field Work Seminar to secure their internship, but that they finalize their arrangements while still enrolled in JUST 345. Ideally, students should discuss their internship arrangements with their Field Work Seminar instructor before the beginning of the course. Students must do their internship at the same time they are enrolled in the Field Work Seminar, not before.
