PSYCH 540 - Internship Seminar

Credits: 2
A corequisite course for all students participating in applied internships in the Psychology department (i.e., all internships except PSYCH 505 , PSYCH 506  and PSYCH 530 ). The course focuses on integrating students’ internship experiences with their understanding of psychological theory and research. Students meet biweekly during the first two weeks and last two weeks of the semester and weekly during the balance of the semester. Topics such as ethics, appropriate workplace behavior, and relationships with supervisors and co-workers provide the focus of the early meetings, and the rest of the semester is devoted to examining students’ internship experiences and the on-going ethical or practice issues. A paper and formal in-class presentation, assessing the relationship of the student’s field experience to current psychological theory and research, are required. May be repeated for credit.

Prerequisite: Permission of instructor. Corequisite: Any Psychology Department internship (except PSYCH 505 , PSYCH 506  or PSYCH 530 ), or any of WGSS 501 , WGSS 502  or WGSS 503 .
