Psychology at Clarkson University is the study of mind and behavior, from exploring the activity of individual brain cells to the complex interactions between individuals and society. 

Psychology investigates how people develop, learn, perceive the world and form relationships, in addition to why conflict is a part of human experience. Psychologists also try to understand the nature and causes of abnormalities and search for effective treatments to relieve chronic mental health suffering.

Participation in at least one semester of professional experience is a requirement of the program  — and you may decide to do more than one semester. Professional experiences include cutting-edge research with psychology faculty, working/volunteering at organizations related to your career interests, and working with mental health professionals or school psychologists, to name a few.


Psychology is an excellent major if you are interested in a career as a lawyer or health care provider (e.g., physician, physical therapist, physician assistant, occupational therapist) or a career in business (e.g., MBA). All of these areas require an ability to understand and deal with people, problem solve, think critically and communicate, and Clarkson will provide you with these critical skills. There are also a wide variety of careers that are directly related to psychology, including:
