Psychology Internship (PSYC 499)

An understanding of the behavior and learning potential of individuals who are different from you can be an effective tool for intrapersonal and interpersonal Christian growth. The PSYC 499 Internship is required of all residential students pursuing their B.S. in Psychology. An internship provides experience in the field, awareness of professional responsibilities and skills needed to work in the field, and the ability to process and synthesize human behavior patterns.

PSYC 499 is designed to provide direct observational experience of individuals receiving services at a site. It is also designed to allow students the opportunity to build the skills needed for professional employment in the helping professions. Students will combine past course material with current observational experiences in order to synthesize their understanding of human development in spiritual, social, emotional, and cognitive-behavioral domains. The primary emphasis of PSYC 499 is the observation and acquisition of skills necessary for helping specific populations.
