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 study at the Mount is designed to satisfy intellectual curiosity, offer insight into human behavior, and to offer another dimension to education and nursing studies in particular, and all disciplines in general.

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. 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.
