Psychology Department Internship Program

The Psychology Department and UVA Career Center have partnered to establish the Psychology Department Internship Program (PDIP). Through this unique program, students majoring in Psychology have access to exclusive summer internships that will help connect their academic experiences to real-world, professional engagements. These summer internship opportunities will be supported by funding from the Psychology Department or external sponsors.


Specific eligibility requirements will vary by internship, but students must be majoring in Psychology to participate.
