Why do people think and behave the way they do? St. Lawrence’s psychology department takes a broad approach to answering this question, offering courses on diverse topics such as the brain and behavior, sensation and perception, learning, development, personality, abnormal psychology, and social behavior. You can also explore the application of psychology through courses on sport, community, clinical, cultural, legal, and environmental psychology.
Many of our students work one-on-one with faculty mentors on collaborative research projects. Recently, our students have conducted studies on memory and trauma, nanoparticles, learning, virtual reality, infant communication, coach-athlete relationships, sleep and hoarding, and juror decision-making.
Our graduates work in a variety of settings, such as schools, counseling centers, businesses, and not-for-profit agencies. Some obtain their graduate degree in areas such as social work, teaching, physical therapy, mental health counseling, school psychology, law, and nursing.
