Open House: Building Your Career with a CLJ Degree  Add To Calendar

Please join us on Wednesday, October 26 for an Open House in the Department of Criminology, Law, and Justice in the Behavioral Sciences Building, room 4011 between 10am and 2pm.

Our theme this year is "Building a Career With Your CLJ Degree" and we have planned four panels that will highlight the numerous ways that students can strategize and think more creatively about their future careers in a changing market.

Students are invited to attend panels that will address career and service opportunities in Working with Immigrants, Working with Youth, and Working with Incarcerated Persons. Come hear representatives from non-profit and grassroots-based agencies talk about how they pursued careers as advocates for groups confronting the justice system, or with groups who work for social justice. Explore opportunities to enhance your education by pursuing internship and volunteer opportunities with Chicago’s service and social justice-focused organizations.
