PSYCHOLOGY

Major Overview
Psychology is one of the majors offered in the Arts and Sciences Division of Wilberforce University. The program provides students with sound learning experiences both in and out of the classroom. Furthermore, the program is strategically designed to provide students with critical and analytical thinking skills and to facilitate the acquisition of the body knowledge inherent in the study of behavior and mental processes. The curriculum emphasizes methodological issues which allow the students to learn the fundamentals of good and publishable research.

One significant distinction that sets Wilberforce University’s Psychology program apart from most of the Psychology programs in the nation is the fact that majors, during their senior year, are required to write and defend a senior thesis. In many ways, this thesis project is equivalent to a Masters Thesis.

Faculty:
The faculty is composed of highly qualified and committed individuals who are prepared to do whatever it takes to ensure that psychology majors are satisfied in their quest to achieving their potential and realizing their goals.

Most Popular Classes:
PSY 445 – Methods and Techniques of Social Research and Psy 490 – Senior Thesis.

Research Opportunities:
The Psychology curriculum includes – Psychology 445 – Methods and Techniques of Social Research and Psy 490, Senior Thesis. These allow majors to learn the fundamentals skills necessary for carrying out good and publishable research.

Special Programs and Projects
Seniors, who are able to complete their senior thesis projects a semester before graduation, attend and present their thesis projects in various conferences. Seniors and juniors also have the benefit of acquiring research skills through the Minority Student Enhancement Program, at Wright State University.

Special Interest:
