    Psychology @ Monmouth University

    The defining characteristic of our major is that we do not focus on preparing students for a specific job or career. Rather we encourage students to explore the broad spectrum of opportunities within psychology. To facilitate this, our major emphasizes skill development and hands-on experiences rather than memorization of facts.

    The following are employer-valued skills students acquire in our program:

    • Project Management Skills
    • Written Communication Skills 
    • Oral Communication Skills
    • Critical Thinking Skills
    • Creative Problem Solving Skills
    • Time Management Skills
    • Interpersonal Skills
    • Information Gathering and Processing Skills
    • Data Analysis and Psychometric Skills
    • Data Presentation Skills
    • Adaptability to Changing Situations
    • Eagerness to Learn New Skills
    • Ability to Work as Part of a Team

    Psychology majors at Monmouth are not only taught to understand the facts related to psychology, but they are also taught how to think critically and scientifically. They learn to analyze facts and develop a greater understanding of the world around them. Psychology students leave Monmouth with a new, informed perspective of the world and how to think about it.
