Student Opportunities

Your education will not stop in the classroom. The city and the world become your lab when you can do internships, research, and independent studies. 

Our students present at regional and national conferences and publish in journals alongside their professors. They put their skills to practice in internships at institutions throughout the city. 


Intern at some of the top medical, social, or cultural institutions in New York.

Faculty affiliations with top teaching and research hospitals in New York City have enabled students to intern and conduct research with professionals at these and many other sites, such as the New York State Psychiatric Institute at Columbia Medical Center, the Forensic Psychiatry Clinic of the Brooklyn Supreme Court, Planned Parenthood, Mediamark Research, a therapeutic nursery of The Jewish Board of Children and Family Services, the Psychology Department at Columbia University, the Howard Haber School, the Office of the Kings County District Attorney, Kings County Hospital, Sesame Street, and the Mt. Sinai Autism Seaver Center.


Research & Independent Study

The Marymount Manhattan Psychology Department faculty works closely with students to help them develop original research, either independently or in faculty-supervised research teams.


Students have had the opportunity to present their research at annual conventions of the Eastern Psychological Association, the American Psychological Association, the Association for Psychological Science, and the Society of Industrial/Organizational Psychologists.


Faculty-student research reports have also been published in journals, such as the Academic Psychology Bulletin, Journal of Social Psychology, Psychological Reports, and the Journal of Psychiatry and Law.
