Mount Union truly changed from being “school” to “my second home” because of my international friends. All of the international students are very united and have definitely become my family.  

Psychology Internships

Psychology Internships provide students seeking a psychology degree with the chance to go out into the workforce and gain practical experience, which is critical to finding a job after graduation. These experiences provide an opportunity to gain practical knowledge in certain areas of concentration while allowing students to apply textbook information into the work place.
