The Department of Criminal Justice's undergraduate Criminal Justice degree programs help link students to both non-credit as well as credit bearing internship opportunities with organizations ranging from  a variety of local, state, and federal criminal justice agencies (including most local law enforcement agencies in the region), the City of New Orleans Public Defender's Office, as well as not-for-profit agencies focusing on issues specific to the needs of currently or formerly incarcerated men and women (i.e. drug programs, job-training, education), agencies those advocating for the needs and rights of victims of crime. Many of these internships have been offered for over twenty-five years, and a large number of our graduates now work in these agencies.
