International Studies and Students:  The Department participates with the University of Zagreb in a joint study program. American students have opportunities to study in Croatia, and Croatian students study on the campus of ISU. The faculty of the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice has opportunities to teach in the criminology program at the University of Zagreb. The Department has always had a significant enrollment of international students from countries as diverse as Saudi Arabia, Oman, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Malaysia, China, Japan, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Mexico,Venezuela, France, Italy, Germany and Canada. These international students are often practitioners who have taken professional leaves of absence to pursue degrees in the United States. Their presence in the classroom enriches the experience of American students by exposing them to other cultures, other criminal justice systems, and other ideas about law and justice. Our international alumni include an assistant superintendent of police in Sabah Province, Malaysia; the assistant to the governor of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia; the associate warden of a major prison in Lagos, Nigeria; a professor at the Venezuelan national military academy; and many senior police officers in Saudi Arabia, Oman, and Malaysia.
