Careers and Internships

A fundamental goal of psychologists is to apply our knowledge to better the lives of individuals and society in general through our understanding of human behavior. To this end, psychology majors are encouraged to pursue internship opportunities while at St. Cloud State and have a variety of career opportunities open to them upon graduation.

A majority of psychology majors complete an applied experience/internship while at St. Cloud State. Our students have interned at well over 100 different area organizations. The Psychology Department and SCSU Career Center actively assists students in finding internships and career opportunities.

Volunteer Opportunities

Many of our majors and graduate have pursued rewarding volunteer experiences that both enhances their psychology education and enriches their lives and the lives of others. Some examples of places to volunteer include: Hands Across the World, Peace Corps, and Youth First Community of Promise
