Psychology

Our Psychology Program is the largest major at Flagler College and has a well-earned reputation for preparing students to excel. You'll have the flexibility to find your niche in behavioral science, opening many doors that will lead to an endless, diverse amount of opportunities.

What You'll Study

Our curriculum emphasizes psychology as a basic and applied science. It is built on the American Psychological Association (APA) undergraduate learning goals and objectives.

We will challenge you to think critically and independently while exploring research questions, methods, and ethical standards. You'll then learn to communicate your ideas and conclusions effectively.

These skills will equip you to take on a variety of careers or head straight into graduate studies.

Practical Experience

To get the most out of your time at Flagler, we recommend you pursue independent research and internship experiences. Internship hours do not count toward a major area of concentration or toward minor areas of study in social sciences.
