UNA Psychology Department
Welcome to the UNA Psychology program. The mission of the psychology department is to assist students to achieve their personal and professional potential through training in scientific methods and discipline-specific knowledge in the study of behavior, mental processes, and physiological processes, promoting a spirit of active inquiry and critical thinking, and fostering a sense of social responsibility in the global community.
The department houses four full time faculty members with expertise in both the applied and research fields of psychology with particular emphasis on Clinical Psychology, Applied Behavior Analysis, Cognitive Psychology, and Social Psychology. There is a strong emphasis on research, critical thinking, and application of psychology to traditional settings such as education and mental health settings; however, we also strive to apply psychology to other areas such as public policy and industry.
Our alumni have been successful entering entry-level psychology related employment as well as Masters and Ph.D. level graduate school programs.
