Additional Course Details: 

Internship – PSYC 793: paperwork due in office by 3pm on April 12th.
In order to take PSYC 793, you must obtain an approved placement site.  Students can take PSYC 793 from 4-8 credits depending on the amount of time spent at the internship site.  (4 credits = 8 hours on site plus the 3 hour once a week class and 8 credits = 16 hours on site plus the 3 hours once a week class).  PSYC 762 Counseling is either a co-requisite or a pre-requisite for PSYC 793.

Approved placement lists are available in the PSYC office or on the department’s website: https://cola.unh.edu/psychology/internships.  Find at least 3 placement sites that interest you.  Call at least 3 sites to start.  It could take a bit of time before you hear back.   It would not hurt to do a follow-up call or email.  Once you secure a site, you will need to create a “learning agreement” with your supervisor.  Many of the sites have been taking on PSYC majors and are familiar with this step.  However, on our website, you can access the internship manual and in that, there is an example of a learning agreement.  Once the learning agreement is completed and signed by you and your supervisor, please submit two copies to Tracy Young in McConnell 468.  We will also need a signed consent form and a registration worksheet informing us of what section of PSYC 793 you would like to register for and whether or not you need PSYC 762.  ALL of this paperwork is DUE by 3pm onApril 12th to Tracy Young..

NOTE: You cannot take PSYC 793 without finding a placement site and submitting the paperwork.
