The psychology program at the University of New Haven offers students the chance to concentrate in general psychology, community/clinical psychology, and forensic psychology. Many students have also taken a pre-education track for K-6 teaching certification as part of our popular 4+1 education program or gone on to earn a master's degree in our nationally renowned Industrial / Organizational Psychology program. Some examples of courses that we offer to our undergraduate students include:
Theories of Personality
Drugs and Behavior
Sensation and Perception
Psychological Testing and Assessment
Applied Experimental Psychology
Honors students majoring in psychology complete a thesis that involves an empirical independent research study. As a main component of our focus on experiential education, undergraduate faculty-mentored research provides a unique and challenging learning opportunity that many colleges and universities don't provide. Recent examples of undergraduate research include:
Stress and Memory
Treatment Motivation, Engagement, and Working Alliance in Community Clinics
Motivation for Video Game Play and Civic Engagement
Cursing and Memory
