Internships

Criminal Justice Program

 


 

 

Message to students from Criminal Justice graduate (2000) USMC Captain Craig Q. Reese, Fort Benning, GA.

 


"I encourage you to enjoy your time and take advantage of the many programs available to you. Learn a foreign language, develop your computer skills, and participate in internships to further your education and experience. These will become the basis for your leadership and knowledge making you an invaluable asset to any organization. The Criminal Justice Department at the University of Wyoming strengthened my understanding of duty and sacrifice which I have carried throughout the United States Marine Corps and continue to display to this day."

In addition to academic training, the Criminal Justice program provides the practical skills that will be required of persons working with criminal justice and other service delivery systems. Interns are given the opportunity to gain first-hand experience related to their future careers and to discover which roles are suitable for their desired occupation. Internships vary between one to 12 credit hours per semester, and students are allowed to take a maximum of 12 credit hours of internships. Field placements in various agencies are available to students in their junior and senior years.

Examples of past and possible internships include:

  • ATF (Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives)
  • Marine Corp Officer Program
  • US Marshal's Office
  • Big Brothers Big Sisters
  • FLETC (Federal Law Enforcement Training Center)
  • Probation & Parole
  • Corrections
  • State Senators
  • Governor's Office
  • Police Departments
  • Sheriffs' Offices
  • Attorneys' Offices
  • SAFE House
  • Girls/Boys Schools
  • Department of Family Services

The objective of this course is to integrate practical criminal justice experience with academic knowledge. The student is expected both to participate in specifically assigned duties and to observe the broader activities of the sponsoring organization. Further expectations involve reflecting upon this participation and observation in the form of written assignments.
