Internship Opportunities for Psychology Students

Parris Island Internship

USCB’s Psychology program offers optional internship and practicum opportunities in the field of psychology. You'll put your classroom theories to work, follow best-practice guidelines and gain hands-on experience as you practice ethics and professional behavior in a community setting. You will also select personal learning goals specific to your internship.

Interns make connections with potential future employers, learn skills employers want to see and may develop strong references to boost their success upon graduation. Internships for USCB academic credit are usually unpaid.

“I started out as an undecided major, but after taking Introduction to Psychology I was hooked. The professors in this department all care so much about what they teach and make the material fun and interesting to learn about. I hope to further my education in the Psychology field; at USCB they have classes that allow you to experience different areas of study, as well as engage in discussion with other classmates. I’m so grateful to be a part of this community at USCB!”
