As psychologists, our goal is to discover why people think, feel, and act as they do, and to use the knowledge we gain for human betterment. At SUNY Poly, we find our quest to be intellectually exciting, socially important, and personally rewarding.
Psychology is the scientific study of the human mind and behavior. The psychology program at SUNY Poly provides a broad coverage of the different subfields within the discipline, including neuroscience, clinical psychology, lifespan development, social psychology, and cognition. With an emphasis on empirical research, our classes focus on how emerging studies in psychology improve basic knowledge and provide practical applications to everyday life and real-world situations.
The program in psychology leads to a Bachelor of Arts (BA) degree. The program also offers a minor in psychology.
Our flexible and diverse coursework, combined with our practicum and supervised research opportunities, allow students to focus on classes and applied learning experiences that are particularly relevant to their goals and career aspirations post-graduation.
Graduates in psychology find employment in the areas of mental health, human services, social work, counseling, personnel administration, marketing, research and statistics, teaching, and business. Many also pursue graduate programs in psychology or allied fields.
