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.
