The Department of Psychology supports hands-on learning experiences that add a real-world dimension to your education while setting you apart from other college graduates. From faculty-supported practicum placements to research in one of our many laboratories and collaborative institutes, our students have plenty of opportunities to apply their learning outside of the classroom.
Apply Your Skills in the Real World
Practicums allow students to earn credit while gaining hands-on experience in a specific area of psychology. We encourage all psychology majors to participate in our internship program through a variety of opportunities in the fields of mental health, developmental psychology, sports psychology, family-based social services, and advocacy and restorative justice.
Get Involved in Research
We offer many opportunities for psychology students to participate in research laboratories. Working as a research assistant and earning research credit is highly advised for all students interested in attending graduate school or completing an honors thesis project.
