Obtaining an Internship
Students who are interested in an internship should begin early in the semester and prior term in which they wish to participate in the internship. Interested students should contact Juan Armijo in TWU’s Pioneer Center for Student Excellence. You may complete the required application materials through the Pioneer Center. Once you receive program approval for the internship, the Pioneer Center will assist you in obtaining your internship placement.
During pre-registration, you will need to obtain a course code from the Sociology Program. You may register for an internship pending program approval.
No more than three hours can be applied towards the major in Criminal Justice. However, the other three hours can be counted towards general university electives. No hours of internship can be counted towards a minor in Criminal Justice.
Students who wish to complete an internship should contact James Williams, Ph.D., for approval. Internship courses for Sociology are SOCI 4953 (3 hours credit) or SOCI 4956 (6 hours credit). After registration, students are required to schedule a mandatory meeting with James Williams, Ph.D., to review internship requirements for the term.
