Internships

Our Criminal Justice Department provides you the opportunity to participate in an internship as part of your program. The internship enables you to earn three credits during a given semester upon successful completion of all requirements. We encourage you to find an internship that will afford you the opportunity to translate theory into practice, to apply and gain knowledge, and to experience first-hand the operations and functions of a criminal justice agency. The internship may help you to clarify career goals and explore future employment opportunities. Professional associations and contacts made during the internship may help you as you embark upon a career in the Criminal Justice or a related field.
