CCJ Internationale
French students from the University of Versailles, Lydie Gosset and Clara Charlotin, spent the summer semester taking in Michigan’s beautiful sights and vast cultural diversity as they worked to better understand how the American criminal justice system works. They participated in the CCJ internship seminar with Professor Greg Osowski and gained valuable field experience by interning for the Hon. Annette Berry at the 3rd Judicial Circuit Court in Downtown Detroit. They also took the course Criminal Law with Judge Berry to learn more about American law and its application.
The face of the Criminology & Criminal Justice Program changed this summer with the departure of Janice Jones (pictured left). Jan had been with the University for 14 years and was the Administrator of our Criminal Justice Program from its inception.
In the meantime, Michelle Lishin has now assumed Jan's duties in the CCJ office. Michelle is a graduate of UM-Dearborn and is currently a student in our Master’s degree program.

Master's Degree and 4+1 program 
The Criminology and Criminal Justice Program launched a new Master of Science in Criminology and Criminal Justice program in Fall 2017. The new masters began strong with 24 applicants, 23 new student admissions and 14 students enrolled. In addition, six undergraduate students enrolled in the 4+1 program enabling them to complete up to 15 graduate level credits during their undergraduate study.
Winter and summer 2018 enrollment were also strong. Most of the courses offered in the program, with the exception of a few elective courses, are offered both online and on the ground allowing for degree completion from a distance. The program’s first two graduates are scheduled to complete in Fall 2018. Keep your eyes open for the Fall Advisory and Orientation event offered by Dr. Juliette Roddy –  the event is opened to all who are interested in exploring a master’s education.
