Internship and Volunteer Opportunities
Students interested in getting hand-on experience in real-world settings should consider obtaining volunteer or internship experience. These experiences can serve as a means for students to get real-world experience in an area that is of interest to them and that can be important to potential employers and some graduate programs.
The Undergraduate Psychology Office (142 Kent Hall) has information on volunteer and internship experiences for undergraduate students, as well as the KSU Office of Community Service, Learning and Volunteerism (250 Kent Student Center).
If you are interested in earning credit for an internship by enrolling in PSYC 41492 Internship in Psychology, please fill out the form below and return it to Dr. Joel Hughes (email@example.com).
