About the Program

Culver-Stockton’s Psychology program teaches students the basic principles and theories of psychology. As a student in the psychology department, you can expect a strong and balanced curriculum that will prepare you for either immediate entry into the job market or graduate school. Students can expect considerable individual attention, a focus on improving your research, speaking and writing skills and a variety of out-of-class opportunities in which to learn and explore the field such as research, internships, travel courses, conferences and Psychology Club.

What Makes the Program Distinctive?

What students love most about the Culver-Stockton Psychology program is that the professors are always available to talk to, assist with course material and help with career planning.

Some focus on working with children such as child advocacy, school counseling or applied behavior analysis. Others work in more applied fields such as health, sports and business.

“What I like most about the psychology department is that it is small so you really get to know your professors and the other students.”
–Shelby Beckman ’17
