Internships

Will I get a job after I graduate? How much money will I be making? What kind of work will I be doing? All of these questions are typical of undergraduates, and can be answered throughout the experience of an internship. An internship, especially in the criminal justice field, offers students valuable knowledge that will not be gained otherwise in the classroom. Internships are also a great way to make the transition from student to employee. They allow the student to develop on-the-job skills and contacts that will be a valuable when searching for jobs after graduation. Students who are interested in internships should contact the Internship Coordinator--cjinternships@txstate.edu. The links on the bottom of this page will guide criminal justice internship students through their experience.
