The Cal Lutheran Experience

Criminology and Criminal Justice

As a Criminology and Criminal Justice major, I was able to study under compassionate and experienced faculty. I originally wanted to join a federal agency such as the FBI or DHS. Through the faculty mentorship, I was able to find a career in academia that I’m passionate about, be admitted into a graduate program, do meaningful research on police bias and reform, and launch my life into the next step.

It was an honor to have been selected to shadow six doctors, all with different specializations, during the Marian Medical Center Physician's Mentoring Program. This opportunity made me realize my passion to become a Nurse Practitioner.

My experience with the Sports Management program at Cal Lutheran is exceptional. The program has really helped me prepare for internships and other opportunities in the sports industry. The classes have given me a great introduction to the sports world and helped guide my passion in the right direction. I also appreciate how the professors have so many connections and set out to help their students getting started.
