Course modalities for fall 2021 classes
With the pandemic ongoing, fall 2021 classes in the Psychology Department will remain a mix of hybrid and online. Students will have the option of traditional fully online (online asynchronous, OLA) classes, online synchronous (OLS) classes that meet at a scheduled day & time via Zoom, and hybrid synchronous (HYS) involving a combination of in-person and Zoom meetings. HYS class instructors will contact their students before the semester starts to let them know how the class will meet. If you’re a student and have questions about a class, contact the instructor via e-mail.
Department of Psychology welcomes a new faculty member
The Department of Psychology is excited to welcome Dr. Tomas Yufik, Associate Professor of Psychology, to Shepherd University. Dr. Yufik, an experienced clinical psychologist, will take over the clinical practicum program and will be teaching PSYC 310 Psychology of Personality, PSYC 309 Abnormal Psychology, and PSYC 270 Well-Being and Happiness. His research focuses on the areas of posttraumatic stress disorder, personality assessment, and clinical diagnosis. We are very excited to have Dr. Yufik join us!
The Psychology Department Mission:
In conjunction with the missions of Shepherd University and the College of Arts, Humanities, and Social and Behavioral Sciences, the Department of Psychology facilitates student learning of core psychological knowledge, skills, and values and supports students’ career aspirations and academic goals through quality teaching, mentoring, and advising. Through service and research, the department encourages meaningful faculty and student participation in the community. The department accepts that psychology is an objective natural science. We apply the University’s core values in the work of the department and abide by the American Psychological Association’s Ethical Principles and Code of Conduct.
The department is funded by Shepherd University, but there’s so much more we can do with help from our alumni and the community!
