Psychology Internship Information

Internships allow students to gain valuable insight into psychology related careers. At Santa Clara, psychology majors can earn credit for internships through our Psyc 198 course. If you are interested in this possibility, explore the links below to help you initiate that option.

For internship experiences outside of the Psyc 198 Internship/Practicum course, i.e., not for course credit, please consult with Career Center staff.

Psyc 198 Internship/Practicum Course Description

A course where students can learn how they can best apply classroom instruction to their career objectives through academically supported work experience. Internships at Santa Clara University are closely monitored for appropriateness and practical application. Internships should encourage career skills and professional growth; they should not be just another job. Internships serve to introduce the student to the range of opportunities afforded a degree in the discipline. Students are expected to represent the University in a professional manner and to act responsibly with the client and the assignments. Selected readings. Open to upper-division students with a GPA of 3.0 or higher who have received permission from a faculty sponsor. (2--5 units)
