Criminal Justice Internship Program


The School of Criminal Justice, Political Science and International Affairs Internship Program serves to bridge theory with clinical and practical experiences within the various components of the criminal justice system.  The Criminal Justice Internship Program has partnered with over 115 Federal, State, and local criminal justice agencies, as well as with numerous private, non-profit, and non-governmental organizations.

Beyond traditional internships within police and law enforcement, courts and adjudication, and the greater correctional system, customized internships have been developed for students possessing specialized needs or interests in areas such as drug counseling, law firms, rape crisis, private security, animal humane enforcement, forensic laboratories, and forensic psychologists.

Examples of internships experienced by students have been with:
