In the Community Psychology program, we strive to individualize internship experiences, so that they are responsive to the student’s professional goals and background. Students plan their internships in collaboration with both the Community Psychology program coordinator and their supervisor from the internship setting. The Greater New Haven area is extraordinarily rich in settings that offer opportunities for high-quality training in community psychology.
