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:
loved my experience as a psych major at Monmouth. I had great professors &
classes, and much more experience with research than any other psych majors I
know from other schools. Employers were always impressed with my knowledge
and research skills!
