Students who are interested in doing an internship should identify a faculty member who can advise them as necessary and go to the Career Services office (381-2243). Their cooperative education coordinator helps both undergraduate and graduate students find and get internships. Psychology students are qualified to fill a variety of internships with both local and national agencies. Students should be aware that most local internships are not paid. Recent internship opportunities included placements at Tropical Texas-MHMR, the U.S. Department of State, the Texas Department of Criminal Justice - Parole Division, the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Texas State Bank, the Darrell B. Hester Juvenile Justice Center, the U.S. Department of Labor, Communities in Schools of Hidalgo County, Hidalgo County Community Supervision and Corrections Department, and many more! You can receive upper-division academic credit for internship if you make arrangements in advance with a faculty member.
