The psychology internship program offers students practical experience in psychology in field settings. We offer a wide variety of placements working with children, adolescents, and adults. Students can use this opportunity both to gain worthwhile real-world experience and to explore different career options within the field of psychology. The internship experience facilitates informed career decisions, and provides relevant experience for either graduate school or employment after graduation.
The placements that are available for undergraduate psychology majors are numerous and quite diverse. Some examples of our many placements include:
Students must apply for the internship and meet the following eligibility requirements:
The Psychology Fieldwork/Internship program on the main campus is coordinated by Dr. Katherine Dunham. Students at the Queensbury campus should contact either Dr. Grabbe or Dr. Sturman.
To take an internship for credit in psychology on the main campus, students must apply by the end of the advisement period in the semester before they wish to do the internship. The application materials and instructions are provided in the files posted below. If students wish to volunteer, they should contact the Center for Student Involvement and its Project Help staff to arrange that, not the psychology fieldwork coordinator.
