Psychology Program at SUNY Plattsburgh


Welcome to the SUNY Plattsburgh Psychology Department! Psychology uses the scientific method to study behavior and thought processes in humans and animals. We offer an undergraduate major or minor in psychology and a graduate program in school psychology.

In our undergraduate program, you will learn about psychology as a scientific discipline, preparing you for work or graduate study in a diverse range of fields. Please visit our Psychology Major page to learn more.

School psychology graduate students earn the M.A./C.A.S. in School Psychology. Our NASP-accredited program provides carefully focused knowledge and training in school psychology, following the scientist-practitioner model. You will work closely with individual faculty members, and become eligible for certification as a school psychologist in New York State. More information can be found on our School Psychology Graduate Program page.
