Department of Psychology

We are committed to providing students with knowledge of theories and research in the scientific study of behavior and mental activity.

Psychology students will learn the basic tools of psychological research and how to clearly communicate the results of scientific studies. Through internships, class projects, and independent research, students will have the opportunity to put learned psychological principles into practice. Through this combination of classroom and practical learning, the psychology program prepares students for graduate study or employment in psychology-related fields.

Majors and Minors


All psychology department faculty hold advanced degrees. While teaching style varies by faculty member, all are committed to student success.

“I loved the GC Honors program and Greensboro College. I felt safe and a sense of genuine belonging at the college. I worked closely with my thesis advisor and professors who helped inspire me to define my path and passion of interest. That path has led me to my doctoral studies in Engineering Mechanics.”
