Student Resources

Internship & Field Experience Courses

All CJS majors are required to complete an internship/field experience course with an attached internship or service-learning component. We offer several options for courses and site placements focusing on areas of interest in the criminology and criminal justice field.

Information for Fall 2021: Our decision to offer in-person internship/field experience courses and internships/service-learning is based on guidance from CSUN, local and state ordinances, and CDC guidelines. We are currently planning to offer internship courses in-person/on-campus and have both virtual and in-person internship/field experience options based on students' needs. For in-person courses, instructors and students will be required to adhere to safety guidelines set forth by CSUN. 

Please note that we may switch back to fully online dependent on the guidance received from local public health authorities. Please refer to the class meeting schedule provided in SOLAR and the information below to note the meeting format of these courses. For students who have questions or concerns about the meeting format of the courses, we encourage you to contact the course instructor directly. 

For specific questions regarding internships and field experience courses, contact Dr. Katherine Lorenz at katherine.lorenz@csun.edu

Internship/Field Experience Guide and Handbook:

All students, faculty, and internship site supervisors are expected to review the Internship and Field Experience Handbook, applicable to every class and good for students, faculty, and staff. We encourage students to review this document prior to beginning their internship/field experience work.

To prepare you for your internship experience in the MOSAIC course during Spring 2022, the spring juvenile justice class spends extra time throughout the semester focusing on issues related to mentoring at-promise youth. Because of this, students who complete the Fall 2021 CJS 310 class will have priority registration for the Spring 2022 MOSAIC internship and field experience class.

Students will work approximately 4 hours each week online asynchronously providing support to sexual violence survivors and completing tasks for the organization.
