Psychology Internships–PSYC 381

1, 2, or 4 hours of credit

Clearly, education is not restricted to a traditional classroom setting. Psychology internships provide students with the opportunity to earn college credit as they engage in professional activities. These experiences are highly beneficial: students explore career options, establish professional connections, and evaluate their personal strengths.

Working closely with a faculty member and with the Career Center, students find or design an internship that is related to their chosen career path. In general, students planning to do an internship are expected to take the initiative for making direct arrangements with off-campus professionals and/or institutions.

Prerequisites: General Psychology (PSYC 130), overall GPA of 2.5 or higher and consent of the Psychology Internship Advisor.


  • Students may not receive credit for more than 4 hours while at Luther.
  • The January internship experience will fulfill the J II (Experiential J-term) general education requirement.
