A criminal justice or forensic science/crime scene investigation internship is a unique opportunity to gain practical, hands-on work experience in a professional environment. It allows you to take what you've learned in the classroom and apply it to a real-work setting.
Internships take place either during the fall or spring semester and you'll receive academic credit for your efforts. This is your chance to make contributions to an organization and to demonstrate your potential value as a full-time employee after graduation.
*Prior misdemeanor and/or felony conviction may impede a student's ability to participate in an internship experience.
