Harrison, NY, United States
The Psychology program at Manhattanville College is about how we behave, what we feel, how we act – psychology, the science of human behavior, aims to get to the heart of these. Psychology majors will learn to think like psychologists. 


The Psychology program at Manhattanville College will teach you skills that are applicable to fields including counseling, research, forensics, human resources, and social work. No matter what career path you choose, there are two main branches of scientific psychology that your coursework will introduce you to: basic psychology and applied psychology. Both branches build our understanding of behavior. 

Through the process of inquiry- using curiosity, creativity and critical thinking- you’ll learn to frame questions, find the information and perform the research that answers these questions, understand the meaning of research results, and understand how they might be applied. These skills and understanding will be learned and practiced in coursework, independent research, and internship experiences.


You’ll get a chance to work alongside your professors, participating in their research programs, in the research projects of other students, and having professors and other students assist you in doing your own research projects. Internships and research placements are also available.

Careers include:

  • Applied Behavioral Therapist, 
  • Biopsychologist, 
  • Career Counselor, 
  • Clinical Psychologist, 
  • Employee Benefits Analyst, 
  • Forensic Psychologist, 
  • Guidance Counselor
