Carnegie Mellon University


Though many students complete summer internship and research programs outside of Carnegie Mellon University, you can also receive course credit for your internship during the academic year.

Clinical Research Course (85-480)

You will attend class once per week where you will discuss mental health treatment techniques and relevant research. You will also work alongside psychology professionals at designated field placements and get hands-on clinical experience.

Prerequisite for this course - 85-104 Psychopathology, minimum B grade.

Internship in Psychology

You can receive course credit for internships outside of the university that are directly relevant to your coursework. To receive credit, you must have both an on-site internship supervisor and a faculty sponsor.
