Undergraduate Psychology Internships

Here you will find a list of Internships available to enable our advanced students to gain hands-on experience in the specific areas of their choice. These Internship experiences are designed in partnership with community agencies in a variety of areas of psychological practice. While an Internship is not currently required for graduation, approximately 80 students complete Psychology Internships each year. Nationwide, nearly three quarters of all college students complete Internships.

Participating as an Undergraduate Psychology Intern allows you to:

  • Apply your theoretical learning in real-life situations.
  • Develop applied skills necessary for working in the field of psychology.
  • Sample a variety of career directions.
  • Learn which areas of psychology fit or do not fit your particular skills and interests.
  • Improve your qualifications for graduate programs.
  • Help some excellent agencies provide services that improve our society on the local level.
