Check Out Practicum Experiences in Psychology

Posted on 1/28/2009 7:47:29 AM

The psychology practicum committee is accepting applications for Summer and Fall internships. Junior and senior (during registered semester) psychology majors having a minimum GPA of 2.0 may get hands-on experience in psychology and receivce course credit by completing an internship (also called practicum) at a variety of agencies located in Indiana and throughout Pennsylvania. Doing a practicum provides an interesting alternative learning experience and may significantly increase your employment opportunities after graduation, as well as your chances of being accepted into a graduate program. Research practicum opportunities are also available, but must be directed by a faculty member in the department.

In order to receive course credit for your work, you must be accepted as an intern by the Practicum Committee following the completion of the application process. It’s a somewhat complicated process, so get started on it right away. The application process involves several steps and takes about one month to complete, so get started on this NOW.
