Each major culminates in the senior year with a year-long Capstone Experience. The Capstone Experience includes both a full year Justice Studies Internship and Senior Seminar class. Students complete internships in courts, police agencies, corrections, law firms, governmental agencies, and youth service organizations to name a few. The program in each major prepares each student to succeed in public affairs careers, including careers in criminal justice, public policy or legal studies; the program also prepares students to continue their justice studies at the graduate level or law school. The Justice Studies Department has established the Theta Ro Chapter of the National Criminal Justice Honor Society, Alpha Sigma Phi. The Pre-Law Advising Program provides advising assistance for students considering law school. Graduates receive a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice or a Bachelor of Arts degree in Legal Studies or Law and Public Affairs.
The Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice at Lasell College is approved by the Massachusetts Board of Higher Education under the Guidelines for Criminal Justice and Law Enforcement Academic Programs.
