Internship

​​How to Reach Us​​​

​​The national and global COVID-19 emergency has impacted the availability of internship opportunities. Many agencies have canceled or postponed internships to reduce the number of non-essential personnel reporting for duty in compliance with the recommendation for social distancing by the White House Task Force.

If you are unable to secure an internship for the summer 2020 term, and are on track to graduate in August, email Jessica Cole at jlcole2@dmacc.edu. Options have been developed to prevent delay in ​graduation.



​Part of the Criminal Justice Program includes an internship - CRJ 932. Students are eligible to participate in this internship after completing 24 semester hours in Criminal Justice Classes. Note: It is the student's responsibility to seek and secure an internship.

Report & Evaluation Forms​

​Employment in the criminal justice field is highly dependent upon one's character and background. Students who have a criminal history may complete the program of study, but it is NOT likely that they will find employment in the criminal justice field, and students with a criminal history may NOT be eligible for an internship, which is required for the AAS degree.
