Welcome to the Psychology Department
Psychology is a dynamic social science concerned with the systematic study of human action and experience.
The members of the psychology department at Merrimack work to engage students in conversation and inquiry about the dynamics of human behavior. In addition to developing a comprehensive understanding of classic and contemporary theory and research, we invite students to participate in the very activities that define psychology as a discipline.
Through course work, research activities and experience in the field, you will join with the faculty in building a comprehensive and critical understanding of human behavior and experience. The knowledge, skills and abilities developed through completion of the psychology major will provide you with a solid foundation for pursuing graduate study and work opportunities in psychology and related disciplines.
More importantly, it will start you on a path for pursuing meaningful lifelong learning. Completion of a minor in psychology will give you a solid grounding in a specific area of the field, which can serve as a springboard to other opportunities.
