ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Criminal Justice program at William Jessup University is training the next generation of law enforcement personnel who are spiritually grounded, ethically trained and ready for entry into one of the fastest growing employment areas in the country. We do this training through well trained active duty law enforcement personnel, a requirement for instructors in the program.
Across the curriculum we train our future law enforcement personnel to be thoughtful in deliberation, ethical in decision-making, and compassionate in action. Changes in law enforcement and the public perception of law enforcement demands that our new generation of leaders can identify and respond to shifts in the law, and the community. All Criminal Justice students are required to do an internship with an agency. WJU students have interned with National, State and Local law enforcement agencies.
Texas Rangers Internship Opportunity
Jessup’s Criminal Justice majors can apply for a summer internship with the Texas Rangers through their prestigious State of Texas Academic Internship Program. The Texas Rangers are an investigative law enforcement agency based in Austin, with statewide jurisdiction in Texas. Over the years, the Rangers have taken part in many of the most important events in Texas history and continue to investigate crimes ranging from political corruption to murder. They also act in riot control and as detectives.
