Department News

Online and in-person options available for Fall classes

With the COVID-19 pandemic, many students are looking for class options that don’t require them to be physically present on campus. Other students are excited to be back on campus. Shepherd has done an incredible job preparing the campus for our return, and so the Psychology Department is excited to be able to accommodate all of our students. Fall 2019 classes in the Department of Psychology are being offered in seated (in-person), online, and hybrid formats. While, as in most semesters, students have a number of choices among classes that take place completely online, many of our classes are being offered such that students have the choice of either being physically present in the classroom or tuning in to the class via Zoom. Students should contact individual instructors for information on specific classes. Welcome back, Shepherd Psychology students!

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!

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.
