The CJRC Undergraduate Internship Program

The CJRC Undergraduate Internship Program was established in January 2012 and has steadily grown since its founding. To date, twenty-seven OSU students have been placed with a variety of valuable research opportunities on campus and at state agencies in Columbus. Representing seventeen majors including Sociology, Math, and English, our students possess a range of intellectual interests. However, the common thread they share is their passion for learning more about the criminal justice system, first-hand. I spoke with several of our interns and their internship supervisors to hear more about their important experiences working with the program.
