The program has established internships with Brazos Valley law enforcement and criminal justice agencies, please see the criminal justice coordinator two months prior to the spring or summer semesters regarding internship availability.
Currently, the Contemporary Issues class topic is “victimology” with plans to change topics to “serial killers and mass murders”. Retired Chief Edgar Feldman brings over 40 years of law enforcement experience to this class designed to be small for lots of student interaction.
