Students in Alfred University's psychology program learn about human behavior, develop self-discovery skills, and learn to think critically about themselves and others.
Supervised counseling courses and internships offered exclusively at Alfred University provide opportunities for applying classroom learning to real-life settings. There are also opportunities for practical experience through directed research and independent study.
Alfred University's psychology program is one of only a few, nationwide, that gives students the option of concentrating in any of four specialties within the field(Clinical/Counseling, Child, Experimental, or Industrial-Organizational Psychology) or choosing to complete a broad-based, non-specialized general psychology major.
Six full-time faculty members, each holding a Ph.D. in psychology, and with diverse research interests, offer a broad range of courses and give students the opportunity to engage in research in a variety of areas. At Alfred, students work directly with their professors as they prepare for employment or graduate study in psychology.
