 About the Rowan University Psychology Department

The mission of the Psychology Department at Rowan University is to provide a high-quality education to undergraduate and graduate students, engage in cutting-edge research in a variety of disciplines and sub disciplines within psychology and to provide services to children and their families in the South Jersey region. To achieve our mission, the department offers two undergraduate degree programs: Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (35 credits) and a Bachelor of Science in Psychological Science (62 credits). We also offer a Minor in Neuroscience in conjunction with Biological Sciences as well as a Concentration in Behavioral Services for Children and their Families. At the graduate level, we offer a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and Master of Art programs in Applied Behavior Analysis, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and School Psychology. We have several initiatives designed to support our students including drop-in tutoring, a transfer student learning community, peer advisors, dedicated academic advisers, and job fairs for our students. Students in our department have the opportunity to work with faculty members on novel and innovative research across the diverse subfields within psychology as well as to be placed in community agencies and businesses to experience first-hand how psychological science is applied to practice. Our academic programs are designed to achieve the following objectives: (1) provide a knowledge base in psychology, (2) encourage scientific inquiry and critical thinking, (3) instill ethical and social responsibility in a diverse world, (4) ensure proficiency in oral and written communication, and (5) facilitate professional development. By acquiring this knowledge and these skills, our graduates are competitive for jobs within a variety of fields including business, industry, human service, and education as well as being prepared for graduate study.
