The criminology & criminal justice major gained her newfound love for the study of society during her first criminology course.
“Understanding the scope of crime that happens within society is essential, but understanding why crime happens is the root of criminology and requires deep comprehension,” she said. “Although this course challenged me, it was also extremely enjoyable, and I was able to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation for criminology.”
While at Emmanuel, Gianna held two internships. The first was a summer internship at the Connecticut State Police Training Academy, where she was able to observe the 128th training troop. This academic year, she interned at Community Resources for Justice (CRJ), where she worked on reentry resources for citizens returning from incarceration to the Boston area. “Both internships gave me the discipline, independence and work ethic to go into any post-grad plans with confidence,” she said.
