Throughout the Criminal Justice program curriculum, students experience real-life situations and volunteer opportunities.
Students in all of the Behavioral Sciences benefit from practicum and internship experiences.
We have established relationships with a large number of agencies in Owensboro and surrounding communities so that our students can gain practical experience and better prepare for life after Kentucky Wesleyan College.
Students are encouraged to complete one or more practicums during their junior or senior year. For more than a few of our students, these practicum experiences have led to full-time employment upon graduation.
Student practicums are uniquely designed to allow our students to work in agencies near their hometowns during the summer months.
They often work with state police, local police departments, jails, prisons and pre-trial release programs.
