The Summer Internship in Psychology Program was developed to give students the opportunity to gain valuable summer clinical experience to help them make informed career choices.

Working at Riverside Community Care (in Needham, Newton, and Norwood, MA) and The Walker School (Needham, MA), students increase their understanding of the bio-psycho-social model of mental disorders. Interns develop a deeper appreciation of the complex interface between genetic make-up, psychological coping strategies, and the larger socio-cultural forces determining how individuals negotiate the vicissitudes of life.

    Spanish Department Internships

    The Spanish Department is pleased to offer several internship opportunities to practice and continue exploring the Spanish and Hispanic languages and culture. For Summer 2021, the Spanish Department has confirmed virtual internships at El Observatorio Instituto Cervantes at Harvard University (Cambridge, MA) and el Museo de Arte de Ponce (Ponce, Puerto Rico).

    Due to the continuing pandemic, it is unclear whether the following opportunities will be offered this summer:

    • Asociación de parálisis cerebral y otras afecciones similares, (ACPACYS) (Córdoba, España)
    • Museo de Arte de Ponce (Ponce, Puerto Rico)
    • Universidad Internacional Menéndez y Pelayo (UIMP) (Santander, España)

    Wellesley has not determined whether it will resume funding in-person internships this summer; a decision is expected in April. Many organizations are also uncertain whether they are able to host this summer. If, at a later date, an internship at one of these organizations becomes possible, the Spanish Department and Career Education will advertise the opportunity and reopen the application for these sites. 

    “In the past year I’ve spent a lot of time thinking, talking, and journaling about my career, values, and interests. The courage to see if different doors would open for me, to reach out to people and ask for their time and wisdom, was sometimes hard to come by, but my curiosity pushed me to do things that were slightly uncomfortable, and the results were worth it.”
