    Internships & Student Opportunities


    You'll complete a for-credit internship as part of the major, so you'll earn credits and real-world experience at the same time. Multiple internships are encouraged, and up to 12 credits can be earned through internships.

    We have an Internship Coordinator to assist you in finding an internship that is right, whether with an agency close to SFU so the internship can be done during the fall or spring semesters, or something close to home to be completed over the summer.

    Students complete internships with State or Local Police Forces, County Courthouses, Victim Advocacy Agencies, Probation and Parole Offices, and the State and Federal Bureau of Prisons. Whatever area of Criminal Justice interests you, we'll help you to find a partner agency to gain experience and build your skills as a future Criminal Justice professional.
