Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes. Psychology majors at Winthrop acquire a broad range of knowledge and skills consistent with both the University's general education goals and the American Psychological Association's Undergraduate Psychology Learning Goals.
The minor in psychology consists of 18 semester hours of PSYC. Psychology minors must take PSYC 101 and at least 6 hours above 299.
The Master of Science in School Psychology Program
is primarily designed to prepare practitioners who are competent to
provide a full range of school psychological services including
consultation, behavioral intervention, psychoeducational assessment,
research, program planning/evaluation and counseling. Students are
prepared to work with diverse clients from infancy to young adulthood,
including those with low-incidence disabilities, and with families,
teachers and others in the schools and community. Opportunities for
working under close supervision in rural, suburban and urban settings
are afforded students in the program. Although some of the School
Psychology graduates subsequently pursue doctoral studies, the primary
purpose of the program is the preparation of well-rounded professionals
for work in public schools and related settings.
