Internships are available during the fall, spring and summer semesters. Each Psychology major can complete two internships for course credit. Two general types of internships exist.
These internship opportunities allow the student to learn more about the application of psychological principles to various settings and populations and are particularly helpful both for students who plan to go immediately into the workforce, and for students who plan to pursue a graduate degree in some psychology or mental health/human services area. These internships are primarily available in clinical, counseling, school and business settings.
These internship opportunities involve the student in ongoing research activities and are particularly helpful for students who plan to pursue a doctoral degree or a research-intensive master’s degree. These internships are primarily available in medical school and private research settings. Any student interested in an internship should speak with Carla Strassle, Ph.D., (Life Science, Room 317) at 717.815.6414 or email@example.com.
