Active Learning Opportunities

You'll put your classroom expertise to work in one of the required Psychology practicums—either in a research setting or a service-oriented environment. You may choose to explore the roles at a hospital, a social service agency, a school, or a criminal justice office. Previous placements include:
  • Transitions of Western Illinois
  • Cornerstone Foundation for Families
  • Recovery Resources
  • St. Louis Children's Hospital
  • Department of Child and Family Services
  • Geriatric Extended Care Facilities
  • Early Childhood Development Center

Many of our students have turned their practica into full-time jobs after graduation. Graduate schools have also been impressed by the skills our students have developed through this hands-on experience.
