Forensic Science Internships

Get out of the classroom and into the field at Emporia State

During your degree, you will have many opportunities to participate in internships. While internships are not strictly required for graduation, you are highly encouraged to pursue them. Internships allow you to have unparalleled exposure to your chosen field and to form relationships with public and private agencies. 

Internships are available on a competitive basis and may be on-site in a cooperating lab or at Emporia State University, co-directed by a forensic practitioner and an Emporia State faculty member, with visits to the coordinating agency as needed.
