Student Involvement

Undergraduate Research Fellowships

Students are highly encouraged to become involved in Undergraduate Research Fellowships. At MSU, you may participate in a fellowship as early as your freshman year. Interested students should approach faculty members with whom they have a shared research interest to explore their options.

Most recently, our undergrad research fellows have explored and gathered data for the following topics:

  • Availability of Psychological Services for Law Enforcement Officers
  • Determining Crime Disposition in Rural America
  • Compassion Fatigue in Substance Abuse Treatment Counselors
  • Contemporary Pornography in America
  • The Social Construction of Gender in White Supremacist Literature Across Time

Gaining Experience Through Internships and Co-Ops

Many of our students participate in internships and co-ops as part of gaining hands-on experience before graduation from the Criminology program.  You may earn credit hours for your participation in an internship.

Recently our students have worked with:

  • DOVES (Domestic Violence Women’s Shelter)
  • Kentucky Division of Probation and Parole
  • Kentucky State Police
  • Lexington-Fayette Urban County Division of Police
