The Department of Psychology offers a wide range of places for students to earn practicum credit (PSY 409), and students are encouraged to sign up and get real life experience!
Here's how to do it.
- Go to the Psychology Blackboard Site. There is a current and complete listing of all approved sites, ranging from working with children, to working with the seriously mentally ill, to working with the juvenile justice system.
- Contact the sites you are interested in working with, print out the contract provided, and take it to the program.
- Bring the signed contract to Alicia Ibaraki (practicum coordinator) for credit approval.
Guidelines for Psychology Department Practicum Credit
Practicum Credit (1-9 hours, P/N only) PSY 409
Practicum credit hours are repeatable up to 9 credits. However, only 4 of these credits will apply toward your elective upper-division credits in psychology, and the credits you earn must come from an accredited practicum (see below).
See the Psychology Course on your Blackboard site for further information.
