PSY 481 - Gerontology Internship I

A practical guided learning experience that engages students actively and directly with a professional experience in the fields of gerontology and/or geriatrics to connect experiential learning with academic study. Incorporates psychological and gerontological theory, research, and practice into application in a gerontological/geriatric setting. Provides students with the opportunity to explore career options and to become familiar with professional practice while enhancing the student’s knowledge, skills and interests. In addition to on-site activities, students complete reflective assignments and participate in three seminar discussions. Performance evaluation assessment of the internship site and self-assessment of learning occur at the end of the semester. Students can apply for pre-existing internships or consult with the Gerontology Program Director as well as the Director of Internships to discuss a new internship site.
