|Professor WINSTEAD: Internship programs have become an integral part of the experiential learning process for students seeking careers in public service or the private sector. Such programs bridge the academic and practitioner arenas and provide a rich understanding for students by affording them “hands on” experience at various federal, state, and local criminal justice agencies or in private sectors. Through interactions with practitioners, students develop marketable skills, begin to establish valuable networks, and oftentimes their internship is a pathway for future employment with their sponsoring agency. Through observation and participation, students are better informed to decide on career choices. Similarly, students can recognize the value of classroom learned theoretical concepts are they are applied in the professional environment.
