Internships are an essential part of student education, and psychology is not an exception. In the course of their studies, students gain theoretical knowledge. Internships allow them to get hands-on experience where theory is put into practice.
While not all undergraduate students are obliged to participate in internships, graduate students have to complete one as a part of their major. However, it is strongly recommended that students participate in internships regardless of the curriculum requirements to get the real feel of the job and understand whether they’ve chosen the right career path.
