Psychology in Three

The Psychology department at Saint Michael's College will expose you to psychology in its many forms, from neuroscience, to cognitive, to clinical and now, thanks to the Degree in Three program, you can gain that experience and your diploma in record time.

Students in the Psychology program are frequently out in the field working in alternative school classrooms, mental health agencies, and crisis centers, or back in campus labs researching issues such as the effects of stress on health, or of video-game playing on thinking skills. The faculty at Saint Michael's will help you become adept at formulating meaningful questions while also providing personalized advising to help you finish your academic goals.
