Psychology


Overview

Psychology is the study of the mind and how it affects human behavior, as well as the developmental influences involved in the individual’s actions. 

Psychology at the Mount

Psychology at Mount Saint Mary College satisfies intellectual curiosity, offers insight into human behavior and another dimension to the studies of education and nursing. Psychology is beneficial to all disciplines. 

Our students receive a solid preparation for graduate study in educational psychology, guidance and personal development, clinical and school social work, and general psychology leading to a doctorate. In addition to coursework, students are required to complete a 135-hour internship. The program also prepares the student for entry-level positions in many areas, including social work agencies, corrections, or human resources.

Our distinguished faculty designed the required courses in the Psychology major to give students a strong background in Clinical/Counseling Psychology, Developmental Psychology, and Research Methodology. In the past, our students have presented their independent research at several distinguished conferences in New York State.

Students are encouraged to pursue graduate degrees in the field. For more information on the occupational outlook for those with a bachelor's degree, visit the Bureau of Labor Statistics website.
