A psychology internship is a situation in which you, as an advanced student in psychology, gain supervised practical experience directly related to previous classroom instruction. In the past, students have completed psychology internships in settings such as mental health centers, schools, prisons, and businesses. Our graduates often comment that their internship was their most useful and most enjoyable college experience.
The exact nature of the internship will vary depending upon the internship site and the types of learning objectives you wish to pursue. A faculty member will provide you with a syllabus outlining academic requirements that will encourage integration of prior classroom learning with current practical experiences.
