Real world experience
An internship gives you work experience and insight into what the criminal justice field has to offer. To obtain the Internship Designation, you must complete at least one three-month work term. Find out more by contacting Co-operative Education and Career Services.

*Work Term 1 can be taken during any semester after the first year of studies. Because courses in the diploma are offered during the Fall and Winter academic terms and not during the Spring/Summer semester, it expected that work terms will occur either after the first or after the second year of studies.
