Internships and Employment

We support our students' professional development and career goals.

While internships are not required for academic credit, they open up employment opportunities  in criminal justice at the local, regional and national levels.

Dr. Peter Collins describes the internship program in the above video.

Our faculty members help students find the internships that best match their interests and offer the best professional development for individual career paths. Below are some of the agencies with whom our students have interned or have obtained employment upon graduation.

Students also receive support from the College of Arts and Sciences Pathways to Professional Formation program.
