Criminal Justice Undergraduate Internships/Practicums

If you are in the Bachelor of Criminal Justice program, please use this link to find information about the practicum component of the degree which requires that students take one 3-unit course from the approved list of courses, each of which involves immersion in a criminal justice practice context. These course options include:Intern

     
  • an internship for a semester in a criminal justice agency usually working 12-16 hours a week,
  •  
  • a course in community resources that requires volunteer work in agencies,
  •  
  • several study abroad options, or
  •  
  • a senior thesis.

Some of these options, the study abroad, involve additional fees over and above tuition, for transportation, accommodation and food; others require no additional cost above tuition. Students can choose any one of these options to satisfy the practicum requirement, and may select a second practicum that will count toward their CJ electives or related electives. What you choose depends upon the field you are going into upon graduation.
