An internship with a cooperating agency such as Sedgwick County Regional Forensic Science Center, Johnson County Sheriff's Office Criminalistics Laboratory, Kansas City Police Department, Kansas Bureau of Investigation, Lyon County Sheriff’s Office, or Kansas City Kansas Police Department could be arranged depending on availability. You may have the opportunity to conduct research during the internship. Internships may be on-site in a cooperating lab or may be at Emporia State University, co-directed by a forensic practitioner and an Emporia State faculty member, with visits to the coordinating agency as needed. Forming a relationship with a forensic agency, whether on-site or remotely, is encouraged, as field experience is viewed as an extremely valuable asset by potential employers in the forensic sciences.
