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
