Internships

Internship Opportunities for Psychology Majors
The University of Maryland Department of Psychology has developed a "Help Me Find a Psychology Internship" to assist students in searching for and securing applied and research based psychology internships.

Help Me Find A Psychology Internship: http://go.umd.edu/helpmefindapsycinternship This resource includes a PSYC Internship Search Guide, a Master List of PSYC Opportunities, descriptions of previous UMD PSYC Major internship experiences, the department's Psychology Internship Guide, and a link to keywords psychology majors can use to identify organizations to target for internships.

Undergraduate psychology majors are also encouraged to contact Steve Young, Academic Advisor and Undergraduate Internship Coordinator at syoung17@umd.edu to discuss the internship search and planning process.

PSYC 389-Experiential Learning (1-6 credits)
Prerequisites: Completion of nine credits in Psychology, a 3.0 GPA in Psychology and a 2.8 GPA overall. This course consists of three major tasks: First the student will work in one of four types of closely supervised placements (research, service delivery, human resources, or public policy). Second, the student will complete a variety of assessment measures designed to assist in the processing of learning outcomes and professional skills development. Finally, the student will develop a 2-5 minute commercial promoting the highlights of their internship experience and site. For each credit hour, the student is expected to spend at least two hours per week at the placement site and two to three hours working on course learning assessments. This course does not count toward the 11 course/35 credit psychology major requirements; however it does count for the 120 credits required by the University for graduation.
