Psychology Careers and Internships
The psychology program faculty members strive to prepare students in the broad field of psychology, emphasizing critical thinking, communication, and interpersonal skills.
All undergraduate psychology majors participate in an applied internship experience. These experiences help students develop essential professional skills, expand students’ professional networks, and promote career development. Applied experiences include internships such as conducting research with a faculty member, shadowing mental health rehabilitation specialists, co-facilitating support groups for grieving youth, shadowing intake assessment for early intervention services, and assisting with literary skills assessments and interventions in elementary, middle, and high schools.
