The Science Internship and Arts Co-operative Education Work Experience programs in the Department of Psychology, collectively known as the Internship Program in Psychology (IPP), bridge academic learning of theory with community application of knowledge. Students majoring in Psychology who have completed at least 48 degree credits, and not more than 105 degree credits, with a minimum Faculty GPA of 2.3 are able to apply for the IPP. Successful applicants are permitted to seek a full-time, paid work experience placement for 8 to 16 months to complete the work experience portion of the IPP. While on work experience, students complete assignments and maintain their full-time student status. After completing the work experience placement, students return to university to reflect on their experiences in an interdisciplinary practicum course. In this class, students further develop the skills they learned while on work experience and prepare for a professional career.
The designation of having completed the Science Internship Program appears on the transcripts and degrees of students completing a Bachelor of Science; the designation of having completed the Arts Co-operative Education (Work Experience) Program appears on the transcripts and degrees of students completing a Bachelor of Arts.
