Undergraduate psychology majors gain practical experience working in a social service agency while learning about the many ways that psychology is applied in these settings. Students may intern for a human service organization such as adolescent crisis groups, social service agencies, mental health facilities, educational intervention programs, abused women's groups or homeless shelters. This work gives them valuable hands-on skills and enables them to earn course credit by competing a portfolio integrating their experience with the major. Students also attend class meetings to discuss their experience and learn about ethical issues and careers in these areas.
