Internships are one of the most important steps you can take toward future employment. Fifty percent of internships turn into jobs either with the original organization or because of a connection made through the internship. Internships can help you gain experience for your résumé, aid you in making career choices, help establish credentials and contacts in your job field, and integrate the knowledge you've learned in the classroom with the realities of the world of work.
Eligibility to Complete an Internship for Credit
All CRIM or SOC students may apply for an internship for credit, providing that they:
- Are in good academic standing (GPA of 2.0 or better).
- Have earned a C or better in CRIM 250W (CRIMmajors) or SOC 207 (SOC majors).
- CRIM students should meet this additional requirement: Because internships are intended to provide practical experience relevant to issues previously studied, CRIM students should have completed the basic CRIM course (CRIM 100) and a 400 level CRIM course directly related to the employment setting in which they intend to accept an internship.
- Attend required meeting with the Internship Coordinator. Approval for registration will only be granted after necessary paperwork is completed and students have attended this meeting or made alternate arrangements.
