Welcome to the Psychology Department at Marshall University.  The Psychology Department is housed in Harris Hall on Marshall’s campus in Huntington, WV .  The Psychology Department also has offices and offers courses on the South Charleston Campus.

We offer an undergraduate program in Psychology, a Master’s Degree in either general psychology or with a clinical emphasis, and a Doctoral Degree in Psychology with an emphasis on rural and under-served populations.

Psychology is the scientific study of human cognition, affect, behavior, and relationships. Psychologists seek to understand, predict and influence behavior through research into a wide range of issues that affect human functioning, including social, physiological, developmental, cognitive and emotional factors. Research methodology is central to the discipline, and all psychology majors learn about research strategies and methods of data analysis.

The psychology major earns a liberal arts BA degree while also preparing for a variety of post-baccalaureate options. These include:

*  graduate education in such fields as psychology, medicine, law or business

*  work in business, industry and organizations

*  work in mental health and social service settings.

 

In April 2016, our students participated in both the College of Liberal Arts conference and the Tri-State Psychology Conference.  They did exceptionally well and we are so proud of them!  Below are some pictures from the two conferences.
