Undergraduate Internships

Students may choose to complete an internship in criminal justice. The internship program is designed to give students the opportunity to interact with criminal justice professionals in a work environment. The purpose of the program is not to provide job training, but rather to allow students to see connections between criminal justice theory and practice.  Students have completed internships in a variety of settings, including:  federal, state, and local law enforcement; institutional and community-based corrections; juvenile facilities; commonwealth attorney's offices; and others.
