Psychology

Our Psychology Program is the largest major at Flagler College and has a well-earned reputation for preparing students to excel. You'll benefit from a challenging curriculum, small, personalized classes, and seasoned faculty.

What You'll Study

Our Psychology program gives you the flexibility to form your degree. With categories to select courses from, our curriculum emphasizes psychology as a basic and applied science. You learn to communicate your ideas and conclusions effectively. We challenge you to think critically and independently while exploring research questions, methods, and ethical standards. 

Hybrid Evening Program

Students will take four classes in 16 weeks, divided into two per eight weeks. All courses are face-to-face in the evenings, online, or hybrid for the convenience of the working professional. Courses in Fall 2021 are face-to-face, online, or a combination.

Practical Experience

With the skills equipped, you can take on various careers or head straight into graduate studies. To get the most out of your time at Flagler, we recommend you pursue independent research and internship experiences.

Once you are junior or senior status, have maintained a 3.0 GPA, and have permission from your academic advisor, you will gain access to internship positions.

Internship hours do not count toward a central area of concentration or minor areas of study in social sciences.

What's Next?

Our goal is to help you gain the skills you need as a professional, including understanding human behavior, becoming familiar with the scientific study of psychology, and developing strong writing and critical thinking skills.
