What Students Have Said...
“This job began as an internship and developed into a full time position, the internship program was the key for me as it helped me get a federal level position as soon as I completed the masters program.”
“The graduate program in Justice Studies is great for people who are interested in the justice system and want to focus their study in a particular area, not just criminal justice. Justice Studies provides a wide knowledge base in all areas of “justice” and allows you to really explore your own interests.”
“There is no area of study more worthwhile than the search for justice.”
"I honestly feel like having the double major in Justice Studies has made a huge difference. I am so far ahead of other students in terms of legal research and understanding how to read cases. I haven't had any difficulty at all in adjusting to "how lawyers think." I also really love and enjoy the classes. I know that I made the right decision in terms of my profession, but I also really love Pierce. I think that was also the right choice."
"The Justice Studies Program has prepared me for a position fusing philosophy, law and public policy. I wanted everyone to know that the program can be a great catalyst for other programs and careers anywhere in the world."
