Psychology internship studies are open to juniors and seniors with a 2.7 GPA who have completed any necessary prerequisites as determined by their faculty coordinator. The internship experience is only one component in justifying the granting of academic credit for internship study, and the whole process can consist of the following:
- A preliminary contract reviewed by the faculty coordinator, the department chairperson, the academic dean, and when possible, the field supervisor and modified, if considered appropriate.
- An early pre-internship site visit, for first-time internship field sites.
- Weekly meetings between the student and the faculty coordinator in order to ensure continuous evaluation of the student’s progress.
- At mid-semester, the faculty member will meet with the internship supervisor and the student to evaluate the learning experience, informally review the student’s evaluation form and make appropriate improvements in the internship study.
- A formal end-of-semester evaluation and grade.
