Psychology

Overview

academics psychology
Psychology serves so many vital purposes and offers a broad range of diverse career opportunities. Quincy University's program will prepare you to achieve excellence in whatever path you choose.

Psychology faculty members each pursue a distinctive area of research or practice. All are committed to the individualized education that's reflected in Quincy's small class sizes. That commitment gives you an edge in choosing your career path, winning an internship, and taking the next step after graduation.

Our Psychology program offers a bachelor of arts degree and a minor. As a Psychology major, you can choose from two degree tracks: one designed for those planning for graduate education and another focused on preparation for careers requiring only the bachelor's degree. Both tracks emphasize strong core preparation in such areas as developmental psychology, social psychology, learning, and cognition. Both also challenge students to become critical thinkers, proficient communicators, and skillful team contributors.

Outside the Classroom
You can begin to investigate the possibilities opened by your Psychology education through Quincy's Psychology Club. This student organization sponsors speakers and social events, and members participate in community research. QU also sponsors a chapter of Psy Chi national communication honor society to recognize excellence in the field and to collaborate on projects of the Psychology Club.
