  • About

    Psychology is the science of behavior and mental processes. Many psychologists use scientific methods to study behavior, while others are professional practitioners who use psychological knowledge and technology to help solve individual and social problems.

    General areas of psychology include learning and memory, sensory systems and perception, and thought and language. Applied fields include clinical psychology, counseling, industrial/organizational psychology and school psychology. Graduates can pursue careers in psychology or in allied fields including medicine, dentistry, law, social work and education.

    The Yeshiva College Department of Psychology has two laboratories in Belfer Hall, on the Washington Heights Wilf Campus. The labs are equipped with computers and printers along with software for word processing, data analysis, graphing, spreadsheets, control of experimental equipment, bibliographic databases, Internet access and numerous other applications.

    Qualified upperclassmen may receive permission to take courses at Yeshiva University’s Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology. Yeshiva College and Ferkauf also offer a joint BA-MA program in psychology.
