Internship. Students are encouraged to take an internship (PSYC 496) to augment their classroom experience. Internships for four credit hours are regarded as the norm. Eight-credit hour internships are also permitted; however, only four hours of internship credit may be counted toward the major credit hours requirement. Additional credits taken in internship will satisfy the College requirement for general upper-division electives.

Research. The Department of Psychology also encourages undergraduate students to pursue collaborative research (PSYC 497) in preparation for their graduate studies in the field of psychology.
