Psychology Internships and Involvement
students can benefit greatly from working in their specific areas of
interest. For qualified students, internships are available with local
organizations and businesses.
Internships have included opportunities with
- Florida Institute of Mental Health
- Project Return
- Tampa General Hospital
- Raymond James Financial
- Elder Justice Center
Students can also work with faculty on research projects or to prepare a
senior thesis in preparation for graduate school. Examples of recent
projects include research on false memories and an analysis of
consequences of sexual harassment. Students have the opportunity to
present their research at the annual undergraduate research conference
sponsored by the department.
Psychology majors are encouraged to become members of Psi Chi,
the national honor society for psychology. The campus chapter hosts
educational and social events throughout the year, including guest
speakers, tours of community health facilities, and social outings.
These events allow for a friendly, informal sharing of experiences among
students, faculty and professionals.
