Overview

Psychology courses are taught by fourteen full-time faculty supplemented by qualified professional psychologists from the community who teach part-time. We are a department large enough to offer a range of courses and experiences, but small enough to provide students with opportunities for individualized attention and experiences. Such experiences include research, community service, internships, co-ops, and peer leadership. Winthrop’s location within the greater Charlotte area affords many opportunities for psychology majors in settings ranging from rural to urban.

Our department encourages collaboration between students, and between faculty and students. Respect for the value of all human beings, regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, abilities, disabilities, and economic background is a hallmark of the department that we seek to build upon through close working relationships in and out of class. We are committed to providing a high quality education in which students are challenged but also given the encouragement and support to succeed. 

Recent psychology graduates have obtained employment in a wide variety of fields such as health and human services, social services, business, and education, and/or pursued advanced preparation in various specialties of psychology as well as in medicine, law, business, education, and other fields.
