Justice Studies Internships

Justice Studies Internship Program 

Your internship experience is one of the most rewarding experiences that you will ever have as you complete your Justice Studies Degree. Learning outside of the classroom is an essential component of your education and one way this opportunity is afforded is through our internship program. The internship will allow you the opportunity to apply the wealth of knowledge that you have gained from taking courses in the Justice Studies program. The internship is a time in which you will be able to combine theory and practice. The agencies in which you will be interning, have agreed to offer very rewarding experiences by allowing you to participate in such a manner, that it would be difficult to distinguish you from an actual employee. This means that you will get hands-on experience(s) that will assist you in deciding whether or not to pursue a career in that particular area of criminal justice.
