  • Objectives


    The objective of the CU is to provide students with an institutional experience in companies or other institutions, with local supervisors at the host institution, but still under the supervision of the instructor from the ULHT. In their internship, students should have direct contact with the professional practices associated with psychology within the business environment or in contexts of psychosocial intervention. Students are oriented in their learning process in this first approach to the professional environment, so that they can make use of the knowledge, skills and instruments acquired during the master's degree. Specifically, the UC should contribute to the acquisition of skills related to the definition of the role of the psychologist in organizations, the analysis of specific organizational contexts, the application of knowledge, the acquisition of specific skills in the field of social and organizational psychology, and  critical analysis of organizational practice.
