Getting Involved

The psychology department at Texas Wesleyan University offers numerous opportunities to get involved in the profession of psychology while you are a student. Through these opportunities, students can gain valuable experiences and generate a network of connections with faculty, staff, and other students.


Research Internship

In order to maximize student involvement in the field of psychology, the department offers three different types of internships: Counseling, Research, and Teaching. Details of these can be discussed with individual faculty members.

Research Opportunities

In addition to the formal Research Internship course, there are many opportunities for student involvement in faculty research. This is a path taken by students that want the experiences, but don't yet quite know what exactly they will be doing.

Undergraduate Research Grant

The Texas Wesleyan University Psychology Department Undergraduate Research Grant will provide a maximum of $250 that students can use for research or expenses incurred for research-related travel. This money will be awarded to the most deserving applicants based on a competition.
