The Department of Psychology
encourages students to pursue internship opportunities to
supplement their educational experiences in the classroom.
Internships provide important exposure to the kind of work a
psychology major might engage in following graduation. While
there are a few local sites with which our majors have found
internships during the academic year, generally students get
these internship experiences during the summer at an
institution near their hometowns. Examples of recent
internships in psychology include experiences at children's
aid societies, state departments of correction, county
children and youth services agencies, pregnancy counseling
programs, drug and alcohol counseling organizations, student
personnel offices, and summer camps for special needs
children. These internship experiences can provide the
student with important information about what kind of work
she or he might be interested in following college.
To learn more about
internships in psychology, please contact Dr. Suzanne Houk.
The deadline for summer psychology internship
applications is study day.
