Title

Academic Internship, Capstone

Learning Outcome

(1)  The first and primary objective is the placement of each student in a professionally enhancing work setting.  We intend to continuously improve the quality of internship experiences being offered through a process of continuous assessment of all internships, negotiations with agencies, and internship advisement and counseling of students at the beginning of the contractual process. (2)  Students will critically reflect on the connections between their work experience and the content of psychology and articulate these work-related insights. (3)  Students will develop professional skills and attitudes through readings on professional etiquette, in-class presentations to classmates, and poster presentation at open house.
