About the Psychology Program
Our program gives you a strong foundation in the broad theoretical issues of contemporary psychology, as well as applied, practical experience. You will get to customize your program of study by choosing one of three domains on which to focus: clinical/counseling, social/experimental and developmental.
To best accommodate the diverse schedules and needs of its students, the Psychology program offers all of its core curriculum courses on a variety of days, at an array of times, and at several locations.
The Psychology department offers several study options, allowing our students the opportunity to customize a program that best matches their personal interests and career paths. Psychology majors can choose a minor in another field, double major in psychology and sociology, or complete the major with a concentration in rehabilitation.
Maryville psychology graduates, with uniquely customized programs of study and applied learning experiences, are well-prepared and competitive for numerous career opportunities and graduate studies in areas such as counseling, social work, and law. Some of our alumni now work as child support specialists, child services workers, social workers, substance abuse counselors, support managers for people with developmental disabilities, community support workers, and human resources directors.
