The Department of Psychology seeks to develop students' knowledge, interests, and abilities in relation to the science and practice of psychology, and to facilitate students' understanding of psychology from multiple perspectives. As active participants in the study of behavior and mental processes, our students learn to think critically, reason scientifically, exercise ethical responsibility, be cognizant of diversity, and speak and write in the discourse of the discipline. Students accomplish these aims through extensive research training, internship opportunities, caring academic advising, and career/professional development throughout the major. With this foundation, our students become better prepared to develop their potential for lifelong learning. (download "Why Major in Psychology at Monmouth?")
Emma Higgins, ’11
I feel so fortunate to have graduated from Monmouth University's Department of Psychology. I'm pursuing my doctorate in Clinical Psychology and I know I never would have made it this far without my experiences at Monmouth. Each professor took such a personal interest in my success, always supporting my unique interests, opening opportunities for me to succeed, and making themselves available whenever I needed help or professional/academic advice. When I began my graduate studies, I found that my classes at Monmouth gave me a major advantage compared to students from other undergraduate (and even Masters) programs, especially in terms of writing and research skills. I can't say enough how thankful I am for my experiences at Monmouth!
