Detail of the science building

The Psychology Department​ offers a wide variety of courses aimed at providing students with an understanding of behavior, both normal and abnormal; some classes lay the foundation for a career in psychology.

The major in psychology prepares students for employment in such settings as residential and treatment programs for handicapped individuals, and in drug rehabilitation facilities, although a master’s degree is the minimal educational requirement for many professional positions. A doctorate is required to practice Clinical Psychology and many other professions in the field of Psychology, and is also required to receive New York State certification as a Psychologist.  Mental Health Counselors and School Psychologists are licensed in New York State at the master’s level, and master’s-level positions are available in industry and some research facilities.

At least half of the courses in the major, including the Advanced Experimental research course, must be taken at Queens College. Courses required for the major are offered every semester. Elective courses are offered either every semester or at least once a year. Students majoring in psychology are urged to avail themselves of the many advisory resources provided by the department. These include:

1. Peer advisers. Peer advisers are available in the Psychology office, according to a schedule posted in the office.

2. By appointment, day-student majors can receive advisement from the chair and/or deputy chair. Evening-session majors receive advisement from the evening session coordinator.

3. The Psychology website provides detailed materials concerning course selection, graduate school preparation, and career specialization.
