Sociology Internships

Internships provide you with valuable skills and real-world perspective regarding your chosen career field while giving you the opportunity to explore the possibilities for the future.

By participating in an internship, students apply the theory and knowledge they have been learning in the classroom through hands-on experience in a professional setting.

Please contact the Internship Coordinator and Career Advisor in sociology to learn more about the internship program or to schedule an appointment to talk about your future plans.

"The criminology major at Virginia Tech has allowed me to explore my passion of thwarting and preventing crime. My department has helped me gain internship experience in the field by working alongside police officers, juvenile probation officers, and victim assistance advocates."
