Psychology Internships

You will take part in practical experience to further your knowledge.

We’re dedicated to the furtherance of psychology by thoroughly preparing students to be competitive in their scholarly commitments. The undergraduate internship program is designed to provide practical experience for students looking to continue their studies at the graduate level. Internships are important in aiding students in their quest to further their knowledge in clinical, school and/or research settings.

Psychology majors are required to participate in a Senior Experience Applied (SEA) course and may use the internship to meet the degree requirements.
