In addition to the basic skills in writing, critical thinking, and use of technology expected of all Western students, Psychology majors will have the opportunity to be involved in laboratory work. As students advance in their experience and knowledge, they can participate in individual projects under faculty supervision in the biofeedback laboratory, animal laboratory, or sleep laboratory. There are also internship opportunities available outside the classroom with programs for at-risk children, in domestic violence advocacy, at the local probation departments, and in other social service agencies statewide and nationally.
Psychology students at Western State Colorado University have many opportunities to get involved and enhance their learning through academic clubs. Psi Chi and the Psychology Club are open to students who want to get involved. Some examples of club activities include:
- Yearly attendance and presentations and national and regional conferences in psychology
- Organize blood drives on campus and volunteer at numerous non-profit organizations in the Gunnison Valley
