Internship Opportunities for Class Credit

The Criminal Justice Department offers three types of internships.

The Field Experience in Criminal Justice (CJUS-X477) allows you to bring content knowledge to a real-world setting. Our Internship Coordinator will pair you with local and state organizations such as the following:

  • Court Administrator’s Office
  • Monroe County Jail Transition Program
  • Probation Department
  • Prosecutor’s Office
  • Public Defender
  • Middle Way House
  • Brown County Probation
  • New Hope Shelter
  • Community Justice and Mediation Center (CJAM)

You can also arrange your own internship with other organizations in Bloomington, the state, or the nation. Either way, you can earn 3-6 credits in the CJUS major.
