Additional Study Abroad Info


The internship semester is a capstone experience and mandatory requirement of the undergraduate program in Criminal Justice at the University of Georgia. The primary purpose of the internship is to provide students with an opportunity to integrate academic knowledge with experiences obtained during their time as a major in an agency setting. The internship experience also develops skills and knowledge needed to pursue a career in a criminal justice field. These goals are accomplished through the careful placement of students in agencies that adhere to the highest ideals of professionalism.
