Department of Psychology

Welcome to the Psychology Department at McNeese State University. Psychology is an exciting field of study that considers all aspects of human and animal behavior from its neuro-physiological underpinnings to its expression in complex behavior. The Psychology Department offers students degree programs at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. The undergraduate degree program leads to a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, providing students with a broad background in the science of behavior. This degree prepares the student to enter the workforce in a wide variety of settings and provides the knowledge in psychology required for advanced training at the graduate level. Graduate students can choose from four concentrations in psychology including Applied Behavior Analysis, Counseling Psychology, Addictions Treatment, and General Experimental Psychology. Applied Behavior Analysis, Counseling Psychology and Addictions Treatment each support national certification or state level licensing for students who complete the degree, whereas the General Experimental Psychology concentration serves as a preparation program for those students interested in entering Ph.D. programs. Each concentration leads to the Master's of Arts Degree in Psychology.
