Internships

The Department of Sociology offers internships in Criminal Justice and Sociology, which provide valuable opportunities to build professional skills and networks, learn more about potential careers, and gain a deeper understanding of class material.  Students can choose among several organizations identified by the Sociology Department or arrange their own internship.  Internships for three hours of course credit involve a minimum of 100 hours of onsite work for the semester, which typically corresponds to about 8 or 9 onsite hours per week.  In addition to onsite responsibilities, students complete reflection papers, additional reading assignments, a presentation, and a final paper that connect the internship experience with academic material and their career goals.

Students interested in a Sociology (SOC 490) or Criminal Justice (CRJ 490) internship should contact the Chair of the Sociology Department.
