Internships for Psychology Majors


Elon's psychology majors are encouraged to explore career options in psychology through internships toward the end of their classroom study. Internship experiences also help clarify student interests. By working in selected areas, students begin building practical experiences to complement their classroom studies.

There are many possible settings for psychology internships, such as these:

  • group homes
  • industrial and organizational settings           
  • social service agencies
  • police departments
  • parole agencies
  • psychiatric wards
  • special education placements
  • human resources departments
