Study Abroad

For the past 30 years, the Department of Criminology at California State University, Fresno, has conducted short-term faculty led international trips for our students and criminal justice professionals to visit criminal justice agencies in a foreign country. Typically, our group of approximately 20-30 students and practitioners visit a host country for one-week either over the winter or summer breaks. While traveling, the group has an opportunity to study the history and culture of the country through half-day city tour and then full or half-day tours of any combination of criminal justice agencies including law enforcement, courts, correctional institutions, rehabilitation facilities, and victim services. Our groups have traveled to observe and visit criminal justice systems in Hong Kong, New Zealand, Brazil, England, Greece, Spain, Portugal, France, Rome, Florence, Belgium, Peru, Prague, Beijing, Istanbul, Guatemala, and Thailand. Most recently, we visited Amsterdam, Israel, Costa Rica, and Dublin.  Student scholarships may be available and each program is open to the public.
