Although internships are not required in the criminal justice major, they are strongly recommended. Students in their senior year work under supervision in a criminal justice agency as well as meet other course requirements. It is the responsibility of the student to secure a cooperating agency and appropriate staff supervision. In order to gain credit, students must meet all requirements set out in “The Internship in Criminal Justice Requirements.” Those willing to travel to Oklahoma City and surrounding areas during the week have a broader range of internship options. Internships may be carried out during the summer. In the past, students have successfully completed their internship work in the Oklahoma Department of Corrections, U.S. Marshals, Department of Public Safety, Weatherford Police Department, Oklahoma City Police Department, Oklahoma Indigent Defense System, Oklahoma Criminal Justice Resource Center, Foss Lake Adventure Program (FLAP), area probation and parole offices, and juvenile services. Students have also served internships in the District Attorney’s Office as well as in the offices of private attorneys.
