Internship Credit for Your Job
Students who are currently working in a position related to Psychology may qualify for internship credit. The position must involve work duties that are responsible in nature. For example, filing forms for an agency would not qualify. Students should check with Dr. Richard Kimball (email@example.com) as to whether their jobs qualify for credit. Students would, of course, be required to complete the academic requirements associated with the internship.
