The undergraduate psychology major goes beyond just the study of human behavior. At Springfield College, you will gain a practical understanding of people, as well as a theoretical and scholarly appreciation for the issues associated with the expansive and ever-growing field of psychology.

In addition to preparing students to enter the workplace as well-prepared and broadly-trained professionals, psychology students will receive the pre-training that is required to enter graduate school in psychology or in one of the applied fields. As undergraduates, psychology majors explore areas such as child psychology, motivation and learning, abnormal psychology, health psychology, interviewing and counseling, and more.

Studying Psychology At Springfield College
“I took classes such as Interviewing and Counseling, which helped me decide in which direction I wanted to take my degree. I also was able to get internship experience early into my college career, which helped me navigate my future.” Leigh Ostrander '14
