Hands-On Learning

Students who choose to major in psychology at the University Mount Union have ample opportunities to get involved outside of the classroom. By getting involved in these extracurricular opportunities and student organizations, you can strengthen your skills in psychology and get valuable hands-on experience, both of which are critical to finding a job after graduation.

Research allows you to analyze and investigate areas that you’re most interested in. Students at Mount Union have the following research opportunities:

  • Independent research
  • Research with faculty or student peers
  • Honors projects

Students have the opportunity to intern with the following types of organizations:

  • Group homes
