About the Internship

Interns will develop a number of valuable skills while working on large, relational databases addressing issues of terrorism, violent extremism, and other criminal justice issues. Interns will also have opportunities to participate in crime analysis workshops led by the Crime and Security Data Analytics Lab, which is housed in the Terrorism Research Center. This internship is particularly beneficial for students interested in pursuing careers in research, intelligence analysis, and federal, state, or local law enforcement.

Students across disciplines are encouraged to apply!

Internships are offered during the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. Students will complete 180 hours in the Terrorism Research Center (Old Main 101) over the course of the internship (12 hours per week during Fall/Spring, 18 hours per week in the summer) on a variety of projects. To learn more about course credit requirements and additional internships offered through the Department of Sociology and Criminology, visit the Department’s website.
