At Messiah College, you'll find plenty of ways to participate in leadership roles, network as a young professional, hone your academic skills, and link what you're learning in the classroom with hands-on experience and enrichment opportunities.
The Department of Psychology knows that students must learn in a classroom setting and outside of a classroom setting. By offering opportunities to participate in conferences, presentations, internships, and faculty research projects, the Psychology Department allows students to develop their understanding of the field of psychology in a hands-on experiential way.
So many of the students in the Psychology Department at Messiah are gifted and diligent individuals who meet high standards in the classroom and apply what they have been taught to real-life situations. To celebrate their accomplishments and their use of their knowledge to serve others, the department offers students opportunities to display their achievements and awards to show both our appreciation of their hard work and our congratulations on their success.
The Psychology Department recognizes the impact that peers and mentors can have on one's growth as a student and as an individual. We attempt to promote social networking among students and with professionals in the field of psychology in order to foster a sense of identity within the major and field as well as to give students a chance to interact with experienced psychologists. Providing social networking opportunities allows students to build support groups and friendships with each other as well as an understanding of what a Christian psychologist in the workforce looks like.
