Welcome to the Psychology Department

Welcome to the Psychology Department

Excellence in teaching and research are hallmarks of the faculty in the Department of Psychology at Humboldt State University. Faculty members are drawn to the university by its stellar reputation for quality instruction, smaller classes, and excellent students, as well as the scenic beauty of a campus nestled between a redwood forest and the Pacific Ocean.

The Department of Psychology at HSU offers an undergraduate major leading to the B.A. degree, a minor program, course options for general education requirements and electives, service courses for other majors, and three active graduate programs leading to the M.A. degree, including preparation for the California School Psychology Credential, and preparation for licensure as a Marriage Family Therapist (MFT) or Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor (LPCC), and a certificate program in Institutional Research.
