What is a cohort?
A cohort is a group of students who work through a curriculum together to achieve
the same academic degree. Because they are accepted into the same program, take their
classes together and graduate together, students in cohorts tend to form a strong
support system and professional network that benefit them during their degree program

Is there a senior culminating experience?
In the BA in Criminology and Justice Studies, you can choose between an internship
or a capstone seminar in community service as a culminating senior experience. The internship requires 100 hours of supervised service in a government agency,
community or grassroots organization, and attendance in a weekly seminar. In the capstone,
you will be placed in a work-study position in an organization that provides service
to the local community. You will also participate in a coordinating seminar and produce
a written analysis of the organization that demonstrates mastery of learning objectives
for the major.
