The Longwood University Department of Psychology promotes and fosters ethical and responsible communication, learning and practice of the scientific study of behavior and mental processes.

Join our team of award-winning teaching faculty for a unique and engaging experience exploring the world of the human mind.

Learn to lead and discover skills — that can apply to counseling, clinical, or business settings  from our passionate, friendly professors who care about your success inside and outside the classroom.  


As well as discovering the practice of the scientific study of behavior, you can take advantage of our hands-on learning opportunities, which break with traditional student assistant research roles, developing original scholarship alongside your professors. You won't just collect data, you'll collect colleagues.
