Internships & Service Learning

PSYC 407 Community Internship in Psychology

Our internship is a Psychology elective course (you pay tuition, you get a grade, it counts toward the major) that requires 150 hours of volunteer service at a community nonprofit social service agency. We have specific placements available from which you can choose; students do not find their own placements. An application is required so you need to plan a semester in advance.

For more information, contact lora.haynes@louisville.edu

Resilient Families Project programs:

Students can apply for course credit through Psyc 407 (Community Internships in Psychology (application attached)) or Psyc 491 (Independent Research in Psychology.)

Programs take place at Hotel Louisville every Thursday (nearly year-round) from 6:00 - 8:30pm and students must be on-site ~ 5:30 - 9:00pm (or later). Students involved in internship or independent research courses are also required to attend RFP Lab Meetings on Wednesdays fro 3:30-5:30 on campus.

Students are encouraged to join us for a Thursday evening program to 'shadow' … to explore the fit between their skills and academic/career goals.
