Psychology Degree Information
Be Involved in Research and Field Experiences Alongside Your Professors
Psychology is a field of study that explores human behavior and mental processes.
Develop a robust set of skills, from comprehension of interpersonal relationships
and social services, to science-based research and statistical analysis. This juxtaposition
of both human and scientific understanding will make you a strong candidate for employment.
In a curriculum aligned with the American Psychological Association guidelines, prepare
to enter clinical, behavioral, developmental, organizational, social, and neuroscience
fields. Work with professors to be involved with research, paraprofessional training,
and field experiences.
A major and minor are offered.
You have the opportunity to join Franklin Pierce's chapter of the National Psychology
Honor Society if you meet national requirements for induction.
Alumni Success Stories
"The people we worked with, a lot of them were scared. They wanted answers. They needed
help. Seeing these doctors working on these research studies have such an impact on
the lives of people was eye-opening. It was high stress, but it was also high reward."
