Overview

The faculty includes many outstanding scholars, some of whom are nationally and internationally recognized experts in a variety of areas. We offer an Honors program for students enrolled in the Bachelor’s degree program; five different areas of specialization for those pursuing a Master’s degree; and a Specialist degree program in School Psychology. Our doctoral program in Adult Development and Aging, offered jointly with the University of Akron, continues to grow since it was established in 2008.

The Undergraduate Program in Psychology offers students a number of options for study, including the Psychology major (Bachelor’s degree) and minor, an Honorsprogram, partnership programs with Lorain County Community College and Lakeland Community College, and an evening-only major. Some of our courses are offered in an online format, although it is not possible to complete the entire major course of study online.

Members of the Psychology Department faculty who are involved in teaching at the undergraduate level participate in an Undergraduate Program Committee, which reviews and makes improvements in our Bachelor’s degree curriculum, and addresses special circumstances and student concerns as they arise.

Undergraduate student advising is available for Psychology majors and minors, as well as those who may be interested in studying Psychology at the graduate level, or who wish to explore potential careers in or related to Psychology. Students majoring in Psychology are not assigned an advisor; rather, a trained cadre of graduate students is available on a regular schedule to provide information about the CSU Psychology curriculum and requirements. Issues related to transfer credits, graduation, or the community college partnership programs are managed by the Undergraduate Program Coordinator, while all of our regular, full-time faculty have scheduled office hours during which students can meet with them to discuss postgraduate and career interests.
