PSC 192: Field Work in Psychology
Contact Person: Christi Bamford
What is PSC 192?
PSC 192 is an opportunity to get experience practicing psychology. For every one unit registered, you will need to complete 30 hours of internship work during the quarter. In addition, there is a weekly journal and paper requirement.
How do I sign up for PSC 192?
1. Pick up an application and syllabus from Undergrad Advising.
2. Find an internship that is relevant to the field of psychology. The undergrad office has a list of internships from previous quarters and other resources to help you in this search.
3. Email Christi Bamford to find out if your internship is likely to be approved. Christi's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Fill out the application and have your internship supervisor sign it.
5. Meet with Christi Bamford to get approval for the internship.
6. Bring the approved application (with Christi's signature) to the undergrad advising office to get a CRN.
7. All paperwork must be completed by the 10th day of instruction. If this poses a problem for you, meet with Christi Bamford before or during the first week of the quarter to discuss a possible extension.
What are the requirements for PSC 192?
1. Number of hours worked: For each unit of PSC 192, you must complete 30 hours of supervised internship work. Thus, if you sign up for 2 units, you are required to work 60 hours throughout the quarter; for 3 units, 90 hours; for 4 units, 120 hours. Please see your undergrad advisor to discuss the number of units that are best for your curriculum.
2. Weekly Journal: Each week, you will submit a journal to the internship coordinator (email@example.com). In this journal, you will link your weekly experience to some aspect of psychological theory and research. This might require a small amount of research, and, ideally, these journals will help you come up with a topic for your final paper.
3. Research Paper: The length of the paper depends on the number of PSC 192 units for which you are registered (see syllabus for exact # of pages). The paper will incorporate your experience in the internship with a topic in psychological theory. Thus, it is part diary (your experience), part research paper. See the syllabus for more information.
