Criminal Justice

Christian is an outstanding scholar preparing for a career in law enforcement in Arts and Sciences’ Criminal Justice program, supported by the Ellis Family Endowed Scholarship. The program emphasizes an interdisciplinary view of crime and its control taught within  the context of the traditional liberal arts. As part of their studies, students also participate in internships in order to gain valuable experience. During the summer of 2016, Christian interned with the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, assisting agents in real cases and learning about the agency itself. He said, “Being in the actual work environment provided me with not only knowledge about how cases are handled, but also how to interact with others when working on such cases.”

“Everyone in the Sociology and Criminal Justice Department has provided me not only with lessons regarding the career of my choice, but also with life-long perspectives which I will always remember. Professors Norland, McGeever, DiChiara, Younts, and Skelly ([in the] Philosophy Department) are my mentors now as a student of the University of Hartford, but will always be—family.”
