Internship Information

Internship Credit in Criminal Justice has been temporarily suspended due to Covid-19. We will update this page when internships can resume.

About the Internship

  • The internship must relate directly to the Department’s program.
  • Students must find their own internship sites. The Criminal Justice Department maintains a list of past internship locations and this list is available to students.
  •  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.
  •  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 quarter in which the student is enrolled in the internship.
  •  Student internships are graded on “Credit”/”No credit” basis. Letter grades are not given.
  •  In some circumstances students are allowed to complete two internships (for a total of 8 credit units). However, only one internship can be used for the major.  The other internship would be credited toward general units for graduation.
