Criminal Justice—Internship Options

The CRJ-233/237 "optional" internship program is offered during the spring semester. Students who qualify for the program usually wish to be considered may obtain the application in the Career Programs office, B150, during regular office hours during the fall term.

After submission, the application will be reviewed and the student will be contacted for an interview. At this session, possible agency sites will be discussed. Students typically perform internships in local police departments, the circuit courts, or correctional settings.

The internship option allows students to gain valuable experience through a firsthand view of the criminal justice system. Students work 180-200 hours during the semester at approved sites and meet with other interns and the coordinator at a weekly seminar. A substantive research paper is a seminar requirement.

In order to qualify, students must have completed the following:

  • CRJ-101(Introduction to Criminal Justice-3 credits) and six additional criminal justice course credits.
  • Possess a GPA of 2.0 or higher
  • Submit an application to B150 Career Programs Subdivision Office
  • Seek the internship coordinator's consent.

By participating in an internship, you will make strong professional contacts and form concrete career goals. For applications and information on CRJ-233/237, go to the Career Programs office in Building B, Room B150 or call (708) 974-5708.

Note: Most four-year colleges and universities require internships as part of a four-year degree program; contact the transfer schools regarding possible transferability of the program.
