Participate in the or Shadowing Program.
The Department of Criminal Justice offers an active and broad-based internship and shadowing program for undergraduate students and an internship option for graduate students. Being a mentor through an internship or shadowing program is a challenging and rewarding experience. Your participation lets you share valuable experiences with students interested in pursuing similar professions. These programs also have related benefits for the agencies involved. Internships provide agencies with personnel to complete tasks and projects that can not be completed by existing paid full-time personnel. Internships and shadowing programs also provide agencies with the opportunity to informally screen and evaluate future applicants and to recruit qualified and competent personnel.
