At Emmanuel, internships are considered a priceless component of a student's education experience. 100% of psychology students participate in an internship or research experience before graduating. They recognize that such experiences go above and beyond names they can put on their resumes. For them, internships are practical. Tangible. Real. They are essential opportunities in a student's journey towards a professional career.
All psychology majors complete a two-semester capstone in order to gain real-world experience to help them find competitive jobs after graduation or apply to graduate school. Students have a choice of working as a psychology intern at a Boston-area organization or as a research assistant for a psychologist conducting scientific research, either at Emmanuel or at another academic site.
Our location in Boston allows students to engage in internships at some of the most prestigious organizations in the world. Similarly, our student researchers are able to work as research assistants to some of the most well-respected scientific experts in the field. Our capstone program not only offers our students a significant opportunity to build their job skills and professional identities, but often leads to job offers upon graduation.
