Why Major in Psychology?

The BA in Psychology at Eastern University is a unique program which emphasizes the hub-science of psychology focusing on developmental, clinical, and research courses. Students have the opportunity to work closely with faculty members and take upper-level courses in areas such as the Techniques of counseling, Social Psychology, Applied Behavioral Analysis, and Psychology of the Family.

Eastern psychology alumni have careers as employees of crisis intervention agencies, social welfare agencies, community counseling programs and individual behavior modification programs.  Others have worked as research assistants, social service caseworkers, public health managers, residential care workers, and therapeutic support workers. Alumni have continued to graduate school to study, for example, art/movement/music therapy, marriage and family therapy, and school psychology. 

    “The first class I ever stepped into during my college career was a psychology course, and from that early experience on I knew that an experience majoring in psychology was going to be life-changing. As an alum working in the field of psychology, I can look back and see just how well Eastern’s psychology department prepared me to take on both the professional endeavors and further academic goals.”
