Both A.S. and B.A. degree-seeking students in the Criminal Justice Department are required to take Field Experience. This class is designed to give sophomore level students their first, outside the classroom exposure to the field of criminal justice. Through a series of structured observations with Vermont agencies, students are given the opportunity to interact with criminal justice professionals, see them in their element and ask questions to help clarify their own future career aspirations.
This upper-level elective combines 125 hours of a student internship experience through a local host criminal justice agency with an instructor-led seminar held throughout the semester. The course is designed to give junior and senior criminal justice majors the opportunity to apply what they have learned through participation in responsible and hands-on learning in the field.
This is a description of some of the agencies where our CRJ students have worked, plus a brief description of the tasks, duties, and responsibilities they have been assigned as interns. If a student desires to work with an agency not listed, we will try to accommodate that interest, if feasible.
