Contact: Dr. Greg Page

The psychology major at Pitt-Bradford is designed to reflect the diverse nature of psychology and the varied interests of psychologists. Students are required to take courses in different content areas of psychology to assure exposure to this diversity; however, there is also an opportunity for students to concentrate in an area of psychology of primary interest. The psychology major provides students with knowledge in the scientific and theoretical aspects of psychology in addition to an emphasis on the application of this knowledge.

The psychology major prepares students for graduate work in psychology and related disciplines and for employment in social service agencies, mental health centers, industries, and not-for-profit and governmental agencies.
