Internships (CRIM 180I)

Any changes after the COVID-19 restrictions end will be posted here.

Complete the following (ALL ARE REQUIRED):

  1. Criminology Student Advising (Can be accessed on Canvas
  2. CRIM Mandatory Pre-Internship Tutorial (Can be accessed on Canvas)
  3. A minimum of 90 units by the end of the semester preceding the internship semester.
  4. Until further notice, the previously required attendance at a pre-internship orientation meeting has been replaced with an ON LINE ORIENTATION that students must complete immediately after registering for internship and which is accessible in each internship section on CANVAS. This ensures that students familiarize themselves with the latest and most current information
  5. Open only to Criminology department majors. Prerequisites: CRIM 1, CRIM 2, CRIM 20 (A letter grade of a C or better must be awarded BEFORE you can register). Co-requisite: CRIM 112/FBS 114 and senior standing, or permission by instructor/internship coordinator. Students signed up for CRIM112 or FBS 114 in their last semester are eligible to sign up for CRIM180i internship concurrently.
    Since FBS does not require internships, FBS students will be allowed to register on a space available basis.

  6. Pre-Internship Orientation dates:

As you know, since March 2020, the CRIM 180I Pre-Internship orientation cannot be held in person any longer until further notice. It is now accessible as a module and preview in the tutorial link on CANVAS. Once  students are registered for internship, they will have access to and be required to complete an additional updated orientation as part of the internship requirement. 

This means that if you attended a face to face orientation in Fall 19 or earlier, it is no longer valid, as there have been many changes due to COVID-19.

Those who have access to the online pre-internship tutorial, should
also have access to the orientation preview. If you do not have access to the CRIM Mandatory Pre-Internship Tutorial and Orientation on your CANVAS portal, please email anmiramontes@csufresno.edu or contact Dr. Schweizer at haralds@csufresno.edu to be added.

PLEASE NOTE: only email your request to be added if you plan on
taking CRIM 180I in Summer or Fall of 2021, in order for us to process the request in a more timely manner.
