Criminology

Internships (CRIM 180I)

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

Complete the following (ALL ARE REQUIRED):

  1. CRIM Mandatory Pre-Internship Tutorial/Orientaion (Can be accessed on Canvas)
  2. A minimum of 90 units by the end of the semester preceding the internship semester.
  3. Students must complete an online orientation/tutorial on CANVAS before they can request a permission number to register for internship
    If the orientation is not showing in a student’s portal, the student must contact the criminology department to be added as a user. Orientation information changes continually and students who completed an orientation that was accessible prior to the current orientation should review the current one for updates.
  4. 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 CRIM 112 or FBS 114 in their last semester are eligible to sign up for CRIM 180i internship concurrently.Graduating seniors have priority when registering.
    Since FBS does not require internships, FBS students will be allowed to register on a space available basis.
  5. Pre-Internship Orientation dates:

The orientation/tutorial is accessible as a module on CANVAS to active students at any time without restrictions. Once students complete the quiz that is part of the orientation with a perfect score (100 points) students must download a placement request or Waiver form for internship hours (will complete alternative assignments instead) and email the completed form along with their current DPR and resume to Dr. Schweizer haralds@csufresno.edu as explained in the tutorial. Students must also in indicate when they completed the online quiz with the orientation/tutorial.  After a review of the documentation, students will be emailed a permission number to register for internship if all documents have been completed correctly and attached to the email (NO GOOGLE-DOC links are accepted). Emailing instructions and additional instructions are posted in the tutorial/orientation on CANVAS.

Download the Instructions on how to download the DPR and how to send required documents.  All documents not adhering to the format requirements will be rejected.

All emails should state “ Spring 2022 internship placement request/waiver” in the subject window.

Students should complete the orientation/tutorial and email the required documents as soon as possible and preferably before the start of the Spring 2022 semester so that their placement request can be processed in a timely fashion. Students electing the alternative assignments by waiving actual internship hours should also email that form as soon as possible, so the criminology department has a better picture of how many placements are needed. If you intend to register for internship, you should start the process now. You do not have to wait for registration to begin.

The orientation/tutorial has been updated with new and important changes. Students who completed an earlier online orientation should review the changes and download the placement request or waiver form from the current orientation/tutorial on CANVAS.

If you do not have access to the CRIM Mandatory Pre-Internship 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 Spring of 2022, in order for us to process the request in a more timely manner.
