Internships or Field Experiences add another dimension to your learning at BW.  They provide you with excellent opportunities to link classroom learning with real world experiences.  They also help you develop a network of contacts that may be beneficial during a future job search.  Here are a few tips on making the most of your Internship.   




Independent Study is an individualized academic investigation carried out by a student under faculty supervision.  If you have a GPA of 3.0 or higher, you can choose to do an Independent Study.       

Join the Sociology/Criminal Justice Club.  This club is open to students with any major and an interest in sociology or criminal justice.  The goals are to increase professional contacts as well as to give students an opportunity to get to know other sociology and criminal justice majors and faculty.  Advisor:  Dr. Carol Gregory (440-826-2158)  Email:
