PSY 521 Applied Behavior Analysis Internship

3 Credit(s) W-III


The internship provides an opportunity to apply behavior analysis in community, institutional or business field settings. The student explores career options, gains practical experience and skills, and produces written products that synthesize experiences with readings in the area. The specific setting is determined by the student’s interests and by the availability of placements. Students will read and analyze advanced literature in the topic and will engage in a substantial amount of informal and formal writing. Through revision of written work (based on feedback from peers and instructors), and through discussion of writing processes and conventions used by psychologists (e.g., from the publication guidelines of the American Psychological Association), students will learn to express themselves more effectively. Students will also reflect upon the ways that writing can support learning of advanced concepts in the field. Open to Psychology majors, with at least a 3.0 GPA who have completed 24 credits in Psychology and a WII course. Recommended for the Applied Behavior Analysis concentration. This course may be repeated for additional credits.
Prerequisites: Grade of B or better in both PSY210  and PSY328 .
