Community-based Learning Opportunities and Practicum Opportunities 

In addition to internships, students have opportunities to learn and work in the field through either community-based learning (CBL) classes or a practicum. Offered in sociology, criminology and anthropology, these classes get students into the community either through meeting with various groups, mentoring, research, volunteering or some other kind of joint activity.

A practicum opportunity through the Sociology & Criminology Department offers a combination of traditional learning strategies coupled with several hours a week of community-based learning in the field, usually working in a social service or criminal justice agency. 

CBL Classes and Practicum Opportunities

  • Juvenile Justice – Professors Danielle Carkin-Lacorazza and Ed Jacoubs 
  • Practicum: Victims in the Courtroom – Professor Katie Currul-Dykeman
