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.
