Master's Internship

Master's Internship

We accept internship applications for those seeking a master’s degree in counseling, psychology, social work, and counseling-related programs. The internship provides an opportunity for hands-on experience in your chosen field. We operate on a cohort model which means we invite at least two master's level trainees to work with our staff each year.  Interns spend about 20 hours per week involved in:

  • Outreach presentations
  • National screening days
  • Providing clinical services to individual clients
  • Individual supervision with a senior staff member and/or doctoral intern
  • Writing clinical reports
  • Attending training seminars directed by senior staff members


A completed application will include:

  • A cover letter outlining interest in interning at the CTC
  • A current vita/resume
  • Typed responses to supplemental question below
    • What are your career plans?
    • What are your research interests?
    • What clinical population(s) interests you?
    • Discuss what it means to be a member of your intended profession.
  • Three (3) letters of reference
    • One reference should speak to your potential as a therapist.  The other two references should speak of you as a person and should have a rather long-standing knowledge of you.

Completed application materials may be sent by mail or electronically to:

Counseling Center
Western Kentucky University Counseling Center
1906 College Heights Blvd., #11024
Bowling Green, KY 42101-1024
