Internships

The Psychology Department Internship Program

Psychology majors may choose to complete an internship in their senior year after they have completed all relevant course work in the major. Psychology internships provide students the opportunity to gain professional-level work experience in a variety of human service and research settings on-campus and in communities across the state. Psychology internships are highly structured, according to students? individual goals and closely supervised by both Psychology Department faculty and an on-site supervisor. Students are registered for internship credits when they have completed Pre-Internship Seminar (PSY 4870) and the seminar instructor has approved their internship plan. Psychology majors may apply up to six (general elective) credits of internship to the major. A six credit internship requires 200 hours of work (33.3 hours per credit).
