Internships are a very important facet of the curriculum at Goucher College. As such, the psychology faculty members consider well-structured internships to be essential to a student's education. The variety of internships that have been completed under the supervision of this department is evidence of the flexible and creative applicability of degrees in psychology. Students find internship opportunities through the Career Development Office (CDO), through faculty and staff members, or on their own. In the Baltimore area, there is a wide variety of possible placements for psychology students. Some of the more frequent internships are at:
- Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
- Kennedy Krieger Institute
- Mt. Washington Pediatric Hospital
- National Institute of Child Health and Human Development
- National Institute of Mental Health
- Sheppard Pratt Health Systems
- St. Vincent Center
More internship sites are listed at the CDO psychology website.
A detailed description of the off-campus experience is published by the CDO each year and fully describes the guidelines and timetable for internships. Students interested in arranging an internship in psychology should visit the Career Development Office (and the CDO psychology website), and then contact their individual academic advisers.
Upon completion of the internship, students must complete the online Internship Evaluation. Final grades for internships will not be issued until the evaluation is complete.
