Our faculty

The department’s faculty members are active in a number of areas of psychology including clinical, cognitive, developmental, environmental, educational, health, and social behaviors. As dedicated teachers, they work closely with students in collaborative research, by supervising internships, or advising them about graduate school and careers. 

Pursuing a major

Students majoring in Applied Psychology complement their studies with a minor in business administration, preparing them for either entry-level careers or graduate study. Seniors have the opportunity to work closely with faculty through a capstone project – either an applied internship or applied research. Faculty also provide academic advising and career guidance.

Student involvement

The Bryant Psychology Association brings together all students who share an interest in the field of psychology and involves them in academic as well as social functions related to the field. The organization offers a wide variety of guest speakers as well as opportunities to attend annual psychological conferences, alumni panels, and graduate school seminars.

Where our students go

Graduates of Bryant's Psychology program go on to prestigious graduate programs and are in demand by business, nonprofit organizations, and government agencies.
