Many opportunities exist for hands-on learning in the CJ Department at Bethany, including: EBE (Experience-Based Education) thru Career Services, CJ397 Criminal Justice Practicum, and occasions to volunteer or serve as a paid/unpaid intern.
You must complete an EBE, either EB297 or EB397, prior to enrolling in CJ397 Practicum. The programs are very similar in structure, including the way in which you apply, how you submit assignments, and how the programs are managed. By successfully completing an EBE, you will be better prepared for a Practicum. EBE will allow you up to 12 hours per semester (3 during interterm); Practicum allows up to 6 credits. It is recommended you take an EBE during Interterm and Practicum during the Spring, Summer, or Fall semesters.
