Arranging an Internship


The semester before you plan to do an internship do the following:

  1. Go to Career Services and look at their file of possible sites.
  2. Look at the Internship folder in the Psychology main office. These are summaries written by Psychology majors describing their internships.
  3. Set up a meeting with Dr. Person (or the internship faculty supervisor) once you have selected a few internships you might want to apply for. Dr. Person will only approve your internship if you have taken courses relevant to the work you will do on site.
  4. Once Dr. Person has approved you for several potential internships, the staff in Career Services will help you make an application and set up interviews with people at the sites. Once you have established an internship site, you will work with Dr. Person and your on-site supervisor to design a project and to prepare a contract.
