The Department of Psychology seeks to develop students' knowledge, interests, and abilities in relation to the science and practice of psychology, and to facilitate students' understanding of psychology from multiple perspectives. As active participants in the study of behavior and mental processes, our students learn to think critically, reason scientifically, exercise ethical responsibility, be cognizant of diversity, and speak and write in the discourse of the discipline. Students accomplish these aims through extensive research training, internship opportunities, caring academic advising, and career/professional development throughout the major. With this foundation, our students become better prepared to develop their potential for lifelong learning.
Monmouth University and my psychology education molded me into the man I am and want to be. I am a better person today for my decisions in the past 4 years, and because of that I am picking a piece of the world and improving it!
