          Internships 

          Edinboro University recognizes that hands-on, real-world experience is a valuable tool in helping students to make career decisions and in complementing formal classroom learning. 

          The Psychology Department offers numerous, high-quality, undergraduate internship opportunities. Many students have enhanced their knowledge and skills through placements in community agencies, increasing their chances of employment in the field or acceptance into graduate programs. Typical sites include, but are not limited to, the following: residential treatment facilities for children and adolescents, hospitals, schools, prisons, drug and alcohol treatment centers, crisis hotlines, emergency shelters, and nursing homes/ assisted living facilities.

          Students who are interested in internship experiences are encouraged to contact the Psychology Department internship coordinator for more information.

          Jobs 

          From the American Psychological Association (APA) website: ”Psychology is an extraordinarily diverse field with hundreds of career paths. Some specialties, like caring for people with mental and emotional disorders, are familiar to most of us. Others, like helping with the design of advanced computer systems or studying how we remember things, are less well known. 

          ”What all psychologists have in common is a shared interest in the minds and behaviors of both human and non-human animals. In their work, psychologists draw on an ever-expanding body of scientific knowledge about how we think, act and feel, and they apply the information to their areas of expertise.“ 

          For more information about careers available to Psychology majors, see the APA website.

          The EU Center for Career Development assists students at the onset of their professional lives with many outstanding services, including building resume, interviewing and networking skills and offering numerous job fair opportunities annually both on- and off-campus.
