An Integrated Program Sets Lyndon’s Program Apart
Lyndon’s integrated Criminal Justice program creates a different outlook for students and prepares graduates for diverse careers.
“When you think of criminal justice programs, most people think of police officers, game wardens, you just think of the law enforcement aspect, you don’t see the whole picture. When I first came into the program, I never thought I would want to do casework. It’s human service, but you need to know all the laws, you need to know why these people were incarcerated, you need the criminal justice background as well.
You take your criminal justice courses, you also take psychology and sociology courses; those have helped a lot. It just makes you go ‘oh, this such a bigger field than I thought’. There’s so many more opportunities than you would think.” – Erikka Eddy, Lyndon Criminal Justice student
