our accomplished professors hold varied research and clinical expertise, allowing for a complex understanding of psychology and the ways the field is changing.
the psychology department at muhlenberg college is vibrant, with an active faculty and involved students. the psychology major provides excellent preparation for post-graduate work in psychology and a strong liberal arts foundation for students interested in careers in the mental health field, public policy, medicine, law, marketing research and teaching at all levels.
we aim to create a culture of informed engagement. our students will interact differently with the world as a result of studying psychology and will understand psychology differently through engaging with the world. we cultivate an appreciation for a liberal arts education, including psychology’s contributions to other disciplines and the contributions of those disciplines to psychology. students are encouraged to be intellectually curious and adventurous; wrestling with challenges leads to a better understanding of their own and others’ perspectives.
