Psychology majors, be sure to check out the Department’s Advising page, with all sorts of useful information include this fall’s Military PTSD class and the new PSYC 270 Well Being and Happiness course.

The Department has gotten some publicity for our newly-acquired human brain, to be used in PSYC 361 Biopsychology and possibly a few other classes outside the department. Read all about us in the local papers here:

The Psychology Department Mission:

In conjunction with the missions of Shepherd University and the College of 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.
