Overview

SUNY Oneonta’s psychology program provides a theoretical and practical background in psychology designed to prepare you for graduate school and a wide range of careers. Approximately one-third of our psychology graduates pursue graduate studies in psychology and related fields.

Opportunities

Special opportunities include teaching assistantships, off-campus internships and independent study projects, working closely with a faculty member in small groups. Recent research projects have been conducted in the areas of perception, verbal learning, implicit memory, early memory, visual imagery, communication, social psychology, perceptual styles, anxiety disorders, psychoneuroendocrinology, social cognition, stereotype and prejudice, adult development and aging, personality and aggression, gender cognitions, parenting and parent-child relations, health promotion, and behavior change.

Student Organizations

Two student organizations, the Psychology Club and Psi Chi (national honor society for psychology) chapter, arrange visits to educational and professional institutions, conduct workshops and panels, bring in speakers and organize trips to regional or national conferences, where students pursuing independent study projects have presented posters and papers.

Profile

Erika Scire
Students
Psychology is the study of people, and I just find that so interesting. You get to learn about people from all different aspects and learn about brain development and how they think. When people think of psychology, they think of a person lying on a bed talking about their problems. But it's so much more than that, and it's so interesting to see in everyday life. I'm interning right now in the Office of Student Success, and my research focus is freshman involvement and how to get freshmen involved, and it all comes back to psychology.
