The Psychology degree can be attained via campus-based studies or fully online, or a student can mix their courses, taking some on campus and some online. The Mission of the undergraduate program in Psychology is to prepare students for a wide range of career options in human services, administration, criminal justice, health, business, and education. The Psychology department has two student organizations: Psi Chi is the TU chapter of the National Honor Society in Psychology and the Psych Club which enhances a community spirit among the Psychology majors.
- Individual attention
- Develop interpersonal, analytical, writing and research skills
- Prepare for a wide range of career options in human services, criminal justice and education for example
- Engage in current research in the field of psychology; first step for a TU graduate degree in Psychology, Social Work or Rehabilitation Counseling
Psychology is the study of behavior, mental processes, emotions and their biological bases. Understanding self and others is a tremendously valuable tool that helps psychology majors prepare for careers in a broad variety of settings. These may include medicine, law and law enforcement, education, healthcare, youth services, business, architecture, engineering, wellness, sports, science, and research.
The Thomas University Psychology Department fosters a professional atmosphere of intellectual curiosity by encouraging students to examine the latest research trends within the field and to obtain firsthand practical experience alongside regional mental healthcare providers.
Many of our psychology baccalaureates have continued on to graduate-level study, while others have gained employment in the field immediately following graduation.
Thomas University offers two student-led organizations: the Psychology Club, which offers a university-wide discussion forum and Psi Chi Chapter 896, which has been part of the national honor society in psychology since 1996.
