The Psychology program at ISU encourages a spirit of active inquiry and critical thinking, life-long learning and development and social responsibility. The curriculum is based on the premise that any student of psychology, regardless of program goals, should be well-informed about basic principles of behavior. The undergraduate degree in psychology prepares students for graduate studies in psychology and related fields as well as employment in a variety of settings including health services, research, government and business.
The Department of Psychology offers both undergraduate and graduate programs. Our graduate programs include a Masters (M.A./M.S.) in General Psychology and an APA-accredited Doctoral program (Psy.D.) in Clinical Psychology*.
We also have a Psychology Clinic that provides services to students and members of the Terre Haute community.
The ISU Psychology Department Pre-doctoral Internship Program started in August of 2012. This is an affiliated internship program such that qualified students from the ISU Psy.D. program are given first priority. Visit the Pre-Doctoral Internship page for more information.
