Belmont University | Belief in Something Greater


One way to learn more about the field of psychology is to enroll in a field placement type experience called a Psychology Practicum. This type of experience is sometimes called an internship, but in psychology it is usually referred to as a practicum. The practicum course at Belmont is an elective psychology course (i.e., it is not required for the major) for upper level students that requires a minimum of 100 hours at the placement site during the course of the semester. We have a variety of practicum placement sites - you may select a site that meets your needs and interests, whether you want to work with children, adolescents, or adults, or with people who are chronically mentally ill or who do not need clinical services. Doing a practicum is a great way to decide if a particular career path is for you.  Below is a list of some of the field placements where Belmont Psychology majors have worked.
