Earn College Credit While Acquiring Professional Work Experience
Internships provide students with real-world experience that can be helpful on either job or graduate school applications. Students are also likely to gain insight into whether or not their chosen career paths are a good fit.
Two Types of Internships to Choose From
The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice (SCCJ) currently offers two different internship opportunities:
•We offer a Traditional Agency Internship program in which students gain first-hand work experience in a criminal justice career field. You can find a list of possible internship sites here and we also offer an Internship and Career Development Resources Guide which provides information on internship options and long-term career opportunities.
•We also offer a Research Internship that allows students to gain hands-on experience conducting research alongside SCCJ faculty members.
•The internship course (CRCJ 3970) can be taken twice for a combined total of 6 credits.
Application deadlines for internships are as follows:
• October 1 for Spring Internships
• February 1 for Summer Internships
• April 1 for Fall Internships
