Psychology Field-Study Program

The Navigator 2012-14

The Psychology Field-Study Program provides qualified students with an opportunity to integrate what they have learned in the classroom with direct experience in a community agency, for ten hours a week, two quarters. Students develop new skills and clarify personal and professional goals by working as interns in schools, criminal justice programs, mental-health facilities, and nonprofit social-service agencies. Psychology faculty members sponsor field-study students for academic credit, helping them to synthesize their intern experience with psychology coursework and an academic project.

Junior and senior psychology majors are eligible to apply. All students are required to attend an information meeting at least one quarter prior to being accepted into the program. Students will get an overview of field study and an application.
