Fairmont State psychology classes consist of philosophical, biological, and social frameworks of human behaviors and their clinical and organizational applications.

Psychology majors graduate with an in-depth understanding of mental functions and behaviors. Courses are laced with applied and theoretical information.

Psychology majors who have a strong interest in community service can take advantage of specialty courses just for them. Examples include:

  • The Psychopathy of Child & Adolescence
  • Interpersonal Dynamics
  • Delinquency

Students who are interested in a separate major can also study Psychology. A number of elective courses from biopsychology to the Psychology of aging are offered for students to also earn a psychology minor.

The Psychology curriculum is ideal for students anticipating graduate work in areas of:

  • Psychology
  • Social work
  • Counseling
