All Criminology students are required to do at least one internship and are encouraged to do more than one. Sociology majors not in the Criminology concentration are also encouraged to complete an internship. 

Valpo students also have the opportunity to choose from two different types of off-campus programs through the Chicago Urban Studies Program or the Washington Semester.

The Urban Studies program helps students understand the magnitude and complexity of an urban environment by analyzing and experiencing in person the political, social, economic, and cultural forces shaping a city.

The Washington semester offers significant internships with government agencies, congressional offices, and interest groups.
