The Psychology Internship provides students enrolled in the Bachelor of Applied Science (Psychology) (H344) with a work-integrated learning experience supported by reflective practice and online exercises; the opportunity to receive academic credit for their work for the community; careers development counselling; and transition-to-work skills and experiences. Students undertake an industry placement and complete a reflective journal to enhance their ability to apply theoretical knowledge to new situations, develop in them an awareness of ethical issues and implications of applied psychology in a realistic and culturally diverse context, and promote project management skills in the context of independent and team work. Transition-to-work classes, activities, and assessments promote effective communication skills, as well as the problem solving, data gathering, and research skills necessary to succeed in real-world employment contexts. Careers seminars are provided to develop in students a realistic understanding of the professional, social, economic and cultural issues inherent in psychology and its affiliate disciplines.
Reflective journal (1500 words) on the topic of the 15-day industry placement 50%, professional development portfolio (750 words) 10%, job application letter, curriculum vitae (1000 words total) and application interview 40%.
