Internship Information

About the Internship

Internships provide students with the opportunity to explore careers and develop and learn new skills that will be helpful for a future in the workforce. An internship can bridge the gap between academic studies and work in the real world.
B.S. Intelligence and Crime Analysis students must complete either an independent study or an internship as required by their major; for B.A. Criminal Justice students, these experiences count towards their major as electives.

Criteria for Enrollment in CJUS 5753

1. Securing an internship

  • The internship must relate directly to the Department’s program (i.e., criminal justice related).
  • Students must find their own internship sites. The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice maintains a list of past internship locations and this list is available to students. Students can find this information in the Bulletin Board, linked below.
  • Internships can be paid or unpaid.
  • Internship agencies may be in the public or private sectors.
  • A student already employed in an appropriate agency may serve an internship in that agency.

2. Time expectations

  • A minimum of 120 hours is required for each internship, though an agency may request up to 200 hours. These hours must be completed during the semester in which the student is enrolled in.

3. Student grading criteria

  • Throughout the semester, biweekly meetings with the internship coordinator will be set up to discuss internship progress.
  • Students will be required to complete a final paper of 2,500-3,000 words reflecting on their experiences. More information can be found on the “Process” tab.
  • Student internships are graded on “Credit”/”No credit” basis. Letter grades are not given.

4. In some circumstances students are allowed to complete two internships (for a total of 6 credit units). However, only one internship can be used for the major. The other internship would be credited toward general units for graduation.

5. Employer expectation

  • Supervisors will meet with the internship coordinator at the end of the semester for a full evaluation of the student’s successes.
