Criminal Justice Summer Camp

2015 camp.



Criminal Justice Summer Camp

The UTSA Criminal Justice Summer Camp was developed to give students the opportunity to understand how the ever-changing American criminal justice system works.  Students will have a basic understanding of crime and justice and the roles that the police, courts, and corrections have. Students will receive a brief overview of law enforcement and the functions of police in society.  Students will also have an opportunity to apply scientific theories to criminal investigations by participating in a mock crime scene and also tour local law enforcement facilities. Finally, students will learn about the court process and the correctional system in America.

The Criminal Justice Summer Camp is a great way for UTSA and the Criminal Justice Department to encourage high school students to pursue their goals of earning a degree in criminal justice and careers in related fields.
