Psychology Internships and Involvement

Internships

Psychology 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
  • PriceWaterhouseCoopers
  • Project Return
  • Metlife
  • 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.

Campus Organizations

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.
