Psychology & Counseling

Immaculata University has a long tradition of preparing students for careers focused on the educational, vocational, social and psychological development of the person. Based on theory, methodology and practice, Immaculata’s Psychology and Counseling Department is humanistically oriented, with a strong emphasis on values and serving others.

Our experienced faculty, who are committed to teaching and training, address educational, philosophical, cultural, ethical and practice issues, and encourage ongoing self-reflection in our students. Our faculty members’ areas of expertise range from clinical psychology to educational psychology to neuropsychology.

In our undergraduate psychology programs, you will gain an understanding of the major areas of the individual and organizational behavior, psychological research methods, counseling theories, and the application of this knowledge in real-life settings. We encourage you to put your learning into practice by participating in an internship or a faculty-mentored research project.

Our department also offers graduate-level training in clinical psychology, school psychology, and mental health counseling. These programs provide a strong knowledge base as a complement to practicum and internship training, with additional training and research opportunities in the Psy.D. program.
