Justice Administration Internships

The faculty of the School of Criminal Justice and Social Sciences (SCJSS) believe that providing students both quality classroom instruction and a chance to put the classroom theory into practice is the hallmark of "Professional University." In other words, while preparation in the academic arena is essential for professional development, the SCJSS faculty believes that the opportunity to experience firsthand the application of what has been learned in the classroom is imperative. Therefore prior to graduation each student, with guidance from their advisor, is required to arrange for and complete an internship in his or her selected career area.

Depending on your academic major, internships can range from working one day a week with state or local law enforcement or social service agencies to spending a semester in Washington D.C. working with federal government agencies like the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Justice Department, CNN, the Department of Health and Human Services, the State Department, or the Central Intelligence Agency. A well managed internship, with quality outcomes, is the link between college and a career.
