**Core Therapy Courses

Students are expected to complete two courses (3 units each) from the following. These courses are offered every academic year (usually two per semester).

***Internship Enrollment

Students must remain continuously enrolled in an internship course during their internship year. Many internships have summer start dates so students enroll in PSY9533 prior to the beginning of the Fall semester so the internship course enrollment order is PSY9533 (Summer) – PSY9531 (Fall) – PSY9532 (Spring). However, some internships start close to or during the Fall semester and in these cases the internship course enrollment is PSY9531 (Fall) – PSY9532 (Spring) – PSY9533 (Summer). Once students secure an internship position it is recommended to check with advising to determine the best sequence of internship course enrollment.
