Department of Psychology

The Psychology degree was developed to enable students to think scientifically about behavior and mental processes, develop research and assessment skills, and to use those skills to solve everyday problems. Students who complete the degree in psychology may choose to work in various fields such as assessment, advising, research, and crisis prevention and intervention.  Additionally, students may choose to attend graduate school in order to work in fields such as clinical psychology, educational psychology, social work, marriage and family counseling, rehabilitation counseling, and school counseling. The broad application of psychology in other disciplines makes the courses suitable for students from other majors. The guidelines provided by the American Psychological Association (2013) for undergraduate psychology majors were used to develop the program and student learning outcomes.
