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

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

Urban Studies teaches you 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 program offers significant internships with government agencies, congressional offices, and interest groups.
