Internships for Forensic Science

The Forensic Science program is a full course of study, therefore internships are prohibited until the fall of the second year. Students who have completed their research will be eligible for internships upon the recommendation of their advisor and the program director. Internships are usually available at the Alabama Department of Forensic Sciences and the Birmingham Police Department. Students in their second year are encouraged to find additional sources for internships.
