About Psychology

One of the most popular departments on campus, our Psychology major successfully prepares you for clinical/counseling, school, cognitive, animal behavior, and social psychology. Our small class size guarantees that you develop close relationships with our six full-time, tenured Psychology faculty, who offer a wide range of specialized courses that few colleges with small class sizes can match. Our alumni manage caseloads, work to end homelessness, serve as animal care technicians, and even run sales departments.

"My education laid a foundation which has aided my ability to understand other people and serve others well.” 

 - Stacey Croley, '11

“Majoring in psychology has opened many doors and prepared me for many paths. Throughout my graduate work and beyond, my psychology  degree has prepared me to be successful as a new professional and I am sure it will continue to do so for the rest of my career."

 - Madelyn Frost, '15

 “Georgetown's psychology department primed me for a career in physical therapy. It gave me insight into motivating others, developing rapport with patients, and an understanding for other personality traits other than my own. Most importantly, it taught me how to self-reflect, which has been a valuable tool in all aspects of my life.”

 - Elizabeth Levay, '12
