Information on Internships
Internships are available in both undergraduate and graduate programs. Internships are a valuable way for students to get experience in the field. Through an internship, a student gains important work experience in exchange for academic course credit. Completing an internship is your decision (it is not required), but many students do so. The student registers for internship after meeting prerequisites and being given permission to do so by the faculty internship coordinator.
Information for JUS Undergraduates:
For Justice Studies majors, you must be a Junior or Senior with a 'C' grade point average. Most internships are not paid, but students receive upper division course credit for doing one. Consult a faculty member and the internship manual for JUS 46792 for more detail. See the latest Schedule of Classes to determine which faculty members are supervising interns for that semester. A list of potential internship sites is provided as a starting point for your discussion with an internship coordinator.
