PSYC 497

Practicum in Psychology

Students work with a faculty instructor in the Psychology Department in conjunction with a site experience related to clinical, counseling, and other applied careers in the discipline. The course includes 8-10 hours per week of on-site work and 3 hours of class time where practicum experiences and course-relevant readings are discussed. Students also complete written assignments focused on their fieldwork experience. Open to juniors and seniors with at least a 2.5 GPA. This course is specifically aimed for advanced psychology students and counts as an upper division psychology elective. Students who desire a year-long experience may continue in a subsequent semester through the University's Internship Program and may make those arrangements through the Career and Employment Services Office.

Interested students must complete an application to be submitted early in the Fall term of their senior year.

Prerequisites: Psychology major and permission of instructor.
