Internships and Experiential Learning

High Point University values experiential learning in all majors. The criminal justice program offers many opportunities for students to apply classroom lessons to real-world situations. Students can join the Justice Club, Pre-Law Society or our local chapter of Alpha Phi Sigma (the National Honor Society of Criminal Justice).

Past experiential activities we have created for our students include:
  • Courtroom observations and field trips to local prisons
  • A seminar on serial sexual killers by Robert Ressler (founder of FBI Behavioral Sciences Unit)
  • Student participation in the Citizen Police Academy
  • Attending a national justice conference
  • Police K-9 demonstration
  • Defense tactics for student survival, including firearms safety and instruction
  • Guest speakers from the FBI, customs, SBI, corporate asset protection, probation/parole, district attorney’s office, public defender office and more
