The defining characteristic of our major is that we do not focus on preparing
students for a specific job or career. Rather we encourage students to explore the
broad spectrum of opportunities within psychology. To facilitate this, our
major emphasizes skill development and hands-on experiences rather than
memorization of facts.
The following are employer-valued skills students acquire in our program:
Psychology majors at Monmouth are not only taught to understand the facts related to psychology, but they are also taught how to think critically and scientifically. They learn to analyze facts and develop a greater understanding of the world around them. Psychology students leave Monmouth with a new, informed perspective of the world and how to think about it.
