The need for psychologists continues to grow as the demand for psychological services increases. Psychologists help individuals by conducting research and by providing counseling services. The psychology program at William Woods University is focused on both interactive classroom learning and the application of that knowledge in a variety of exciting internship opportunities. The proximity of our university to several state institutions provides unique and convenient learning opportunities outside the classroom. These include the state psychiatric hospital, the department of corrections and parole, the state correctional facility and various counseling facilities, including several that focus on addiction treatment.
The trend toward a more global society will continue to drive the need for more graduates in the field of psychology. Some of these graduates will go on to graduate schools and become teachers or research professionals, while others will combine their psychology interest with other interests, such as business, law, sign language, etc. to help meet their desired career and life goals.
