This week, Scott was joined by two guests from Boise State University to help him explore undergraduate criminal justice programs. Dr. Laura King is an associate professor and undergraduate coordinator for the criminal justice program. Jim Kerns is an adjunct professor as well as the internship coordinator at Boise State.
Criminal justice is popular field, but there’s often a lot of confusion among prospective students about the career and academic paths it presents. This episode serves to demystify that, while also delving into the “what” and “why” of the criminal justice. With two experienced guests (one with a PhD and the other with decades of law enforcement experience), there are tons of great tidbits to take away!
