The Department recommends pursuing an internship or applied experience opportunity if you are able. Internships are good ways to gain work or experience in your field of interest before you graduate. Many internships are non-credited experiences; they are, by definition, non-academic (non-classroom) experiences to which you apply the knowledge you have gained during your academic experience. However, some departments at UNH have carefully crafted credited internships within an academic framework; for these, you must work closely with a professor who directs an academic component of the internship or applied experience that has been agreed upon and planned in advance of the experience. The Psychology Department offers three courses through which students can pursue credited internship opportunities: PSYC 595, Applications in Psychology; PSYC 793, Internship; and PSYC 794, Advanced Internship. Please check the course descriptions for complete information about these courses and to see prerequisites that may apply. See Internship Manual.

Discuss your internship or practicum interests with your faculty advisor or a faculty member in your area of interest.
The Undergraduate Advising and Career Center uses an online service, Wildcat Careers, to post all internship opportunities that it receives.
Learning Agreements and the registration form for the PSYC 793- Internship are due on Monday, November 19th.
