The Spring Hill College Department of Psychology prepares students for graduate training in clinical, counseling, school and a wide variety of experimental psychology programs.

We prepare students to directly apply their education to a variety of mental health fields and other areas. In addition, the psychology program at Spring Hill College provides courses in support of the nursing program, as well as a certificate program in gerontology.

The Department of Psychology has three goals:

(1) to contribute to the students’ liberal education and to help the students learn more about themselves so that they may make effective decisions about their lives;
(2) to prepare students for graduate school if they wish to continue their education; and
(3) to give practical education and field experience to enable students to find jobs in psychology-related fields immediately after obtaining the baccalaureate degree. A unique feature of the program at Spring Hill is the dual emphasis on personal growth and high standards of academic scholarship.
