Students wishing to enroll in an internship should make plans early. A few internships are available each semester and students should make preparations at least a semester ahead of time by applying for a specific internship. Students are allowed only one internship experience per student. The following internships are currently being supervised by our faculty. Please direct questions about internships to the faculty member supervising the internship.

  • Internships are electives, they are not required.
  • ONLY ONE INTERNSHIP ALLOWED PER STUDENT, PLAN WELL. If you have any intention of substituting an internship for PSYCH 485, do NOT take an internship without first obtaining substiution authorization AND paperwork from your Faculty Mentor.
  • 2 credit = 100 hours and 3 credit = 150 hours.
  • Internship must begin and conclude in the context of one semester.
  • Students must be a Junior or Senior in good standing.
  • Internship must provide student with opportunities that are directly related to the application of psychological principles.
  • Supervisor at internship must oversee student's progress.
