Students greatly benefit from internship experiences.

Our Psychology Internship course offers students practical experience in the field of psychology. With a wide variety of placements where students can work with different populations, including, children, adolescents, and adults.

"Having an opportunity to get first-hand experience with a School Psychologist taught me the beneficial aspects to the field that I would not get from sitting in a classroom. It made me discover my passion for the field more and helped me prepare for graduate school." -Brooke Batson, '18
