Experience the Criminal Justice, M.S. Program

Hands-on Application

Criminal justice grad students intern in local police departments in the towns of New Haven, Meriden, Milford, and Branford. However, many criminal justice grad students are already in service as police officers. Although there are always exceptions to the rule, it is our contention that the best investigators start their career as police officers. Students who are studying forensic psychology often intern with probation and parole offices.
