Objectives of Internship

The objective of this course is to facilitate a motivational environment for the student to develop and achieve the skills needed in the future for their professional career. With this goal in mind we intend to equip our students with the experiences and skills necessary for their professional careers. 

For the student the internship is an ideal opportunity to complete their academic education with the realities of the professional world, to complete their knowledge, abilities and attitude.

The 9 credits from Internship will be performed in the 4th year of studies, through the subjects Practicum I and Practicum II in the 1st and 2nd semesters. During the internship the student is assigned a tutor in the place of internship, and is monitored also by the professor responsible for the internships. The requirement to be able to do the internship is that the student has completed at least 50% of the credits in the Curriculum.

The internship offers in companies, hospitals, social services and in the community in the Bachelor’s in Psychology are extensive, as the University has agreements with both private and public entities in different areas of psychology. 

 

Description of the Final Project

The 9 credits of the Bachelor Final Project are done to assess if the student meets the general and specific requirements of a Bachelor in Psychology. It consists in the development and defence of a project of investigation in the area of psychology, where skills of the degree will be integrated.

The area of investigation of the Final Project will be related to any of the areas of knowledge of the degree, and every student will choose their topic of study. It’s an independent and personal work, monitored by a professor. This professor, a tutor, apart from individualized supervision, can include the organisation of other activities, like seminars or workshops in specific techniques which will help in the process. 

The Final Project can also be finalized in a laboratory, as a result from the internship in other institutes or companies, or during a stay in an university abroad, for example, in the Erasmus Program.
