Criminology Program at Hofstra University


Criminology Program internships involve working side-by-side with professionals in law, social work and corrections and developing professional connections in those fields. Every semester the Criminology program offers credited positions in the specialized courts of Nassau and Queens Counties such as Youth Court, Mental Health and Drug Courts, as well as in the Domestic Violence and Sex Crimes prosecutorial units and in the Department of Probation. In 2012 faculty forged connections with local non-profit, community organizations dealing with issues of rehabilitation, advocacy, immigration and domestic violence. Students interning for these organizations learn valuable advocacy, counseling, mentoring, organizational and presentation skills, crucial for work in the non-profit and social work sectors dealing with issues of crime and justice.
