A Wingate University psychology degree combines small-class learning and a new curriculum with research and internships.
The Department of Psychology emphasizes small classes and a new curriculum designed to prepare students for graduate school. Whether you major or minor in psychology, you’ll be exposed to four fields common in graduate schools:
- Cognitive psychology
- Counseling and clinical psychology
- Developmental psychology
- Social applied psychology
Wingate University’s psychology professors don’t want you to graduate with only a general knowledge of psychology. Our methods allow you to explore specific areas you may want to focus on in graduate school or your career.
A Hands-on Approach
We’re excited about our new curriculum, and we promise you won’t be stuck with the same old teaching techniques. Creative touch from nationally recognized professors like Dr. Jay Wilder allows students to explore the role of psychology in cinema, and hands-on learning complements what you do in the classroom. Intensive research further allows you to learn more about a particular topic while you put advanced critical thinking into practice. Internships allow you to get a sense of a psychology-related career. And the best part: Our professors mentor you along the way.
After You Earn Your Psychology Degree
New curriculum. Small classes. Professors who mentor you. Research. Internships. Are you thinking, “Sounds good, but what job can I get with a degree in psychology?” Wingate University psychology graduates have gone on to careers in sales, marketing and human resources. You could earn an advanced degree to become a therapist, sport psychologist or vocational rehabilitation counselor.
