Psychology is the scientific study of human and animal behavior in all of its many manifestations. The Department of Psychology of Saint Joseph's offers students an exciting and challenging curriculum. The broad range of courses provides opportunities for understanding psychology as both a scientific and a corporate discipline. The department's focus is on relevant, current research and the application of that research in experimental, clinical, counseling, health care and corporate settings. The full spectrum of activities and concerns of psychologists are covered, with consideration given to ethical issues.

Students with a wide range of interests find psychology personally appealing and professionally relevant. Students use the psychology major as a gateway to a diverse range of employment opportunities, including the health and legal professions, human resources and management positions, education and school counseling, and other social, industrial and organizational situations. For those students interested in pursuing graduate study in psychology, the department offers a five-year bachelor's/master's degree program that offers training in the areas of behavioral neuroscience, clinical psychology and neuropsychology, behavioral pediatrics, social psychology, cognitive psychology, and developmental psychology.

Our graduates are currently college professors, researchers, school psychologists, counselors, developmental psychologists, personnel managers, educators, learning disability specialists, social workers, physicians, attorneys, and successful businessmen and women.
