PSY 423 - Psychology Internship


3 Credit(s)

The psychology internship serves as one of the “capstone” experiences for senior psychology majors. This course series provides experiential learning in which students put their knowledge of psychology into practice. Students are required to gain extensive, real-world experience in a clinical or counseling setting. Placements include mental-health facilities, drug and alcohol counseling programs, educational intervention programs and school settings, and other human service agencies in which students are able to exercise helping skills and put their knowledge of clinical/counseling psychology into practice. Students complete 150 hours over the course of two semesters for a total of 6 credits. In addition, students connect the clinical/counseling context to the psychological practice by writing a paper in which they integrate psychological theories and research with fieldwork aspects of the clinical/counseling internship. Students cannot take both PSY 396 and PSY 423/425. Psychology majors only.
Requisite(s): A “C” or better in either PSY 394 or 395; a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.80 and a GPA in the psychology major of at least a 3.0; must be a senior; and complete an internship application and all other corresponding paperwork with the practicum/internship coordinator.
