Department of Psychology

The study of the mind can be applied in almost limitless ways, making the psychology major applicable to an enormous variety of fields and disciplines. At Albright College, you take both theoretical and applied courses that convey essential knowledge as well as laboratory skills, preparing you for a multitude of careers.

Albright’s Department of Psychology offers comprehensive programs in psychology and psychobiology. In addition, you may create a variety of combined majors, combining psychology with elementary education, special education, Spanish, criminology, philosophy or political science. You can also complete a special program in evolutionary studies or specialize in a child psychology track within the psychology major.

All psychology students complete independent research, learn computer technology skills, and receive personalized mentoring by faculty members. Junior- and senior-level independent research, fieldwork internships, service learning and seminars are highly valued components of the psychology undergraduate experience. You’ll work closely with your adviser to select courses that complement your major interests and career goals.
