Want a student's perspective? Ask a Psychology Department Diplomat!

Each year a team of Psychology majors serves as a group of "diplomats" for students interested in Messiah College's Psychology program. They participate in Open House/Preview days and are also available to answer questions anytime through email correspondence. If you want to know more about the Psychology major or department, or what it's like to be a student at Messiah College,

feel free to contact these students!
