To apply psychological knowledge to practical or research issues, our department offers the compulsory course "Psychological Practice and Internship" in the first semester of the fourth year.

This course primarily involves internship or research in various forms, guided by organizations or department faculty. Students may choose to intern at psychological-related institutions to understand the application of psychology in real-life issues and explore future career paths. Alternatively, under faculty guidance, they can research specific psychological topics. Through this course, students integrate their four years of psychological knowledge and practice linking psychological knowledge with life or future careers.
