The Department of Psychological Science at S&T provides students a strong foundation in psychological science while offering unique opportunities for coursework and research that are often not found in more traditional psychology departments. Our department is notably strong in two key areas of psychology that align with the university’s strengths in engineering: Industrial-Organization psychology, which is the study of psychology in the workplace, and Human Factors psychology, which focuses on the relationships between humans and technology design. In addition to these two core strengths, our faculty represent the broad and diverse range of fields within psychology, including social, clinical, and cognitive. This means students have the flexibility to tailor their educational experience to fit their particular interests.
As a psychology major, you will have many opportunities to take learning outside of the traditional classroom through research and internships.
