- About Plattsburgh
The psychology program at SUNY Plattsburgh provides a broad background that focuses on the scientific basis of human behavior. We offer a baccalaureate degree in psychology at our main campus and at SUNY Plattsburgh at Queensbury. We also offer minors in psychology and art therapy. Students can gain practical experience through numerous research and teaching opportunities, internships, and participation in Psi Chi. These opportunities provide an excellent foundation for entering master's and doctoral programs, and they help students develop skills sought by employers in diverse fields such as social service, human service, business, and research.
School psychology graduate students earn the M.A./C.A.S. degree in School Psychology. Our NASP-accredited (with conditions) program provides carefully focused knowledge and training in school psychology, following the scientist-practitioner model. Students work closely with individual faculty members, and become eligible for certification as a school psychologist in New York State.
The Psychology Department hosts the campus-wide Spectrum Institute, which provides numerous services to the community. Students gain invaluable community service and research experience through assisting with these programs. Affiliated clinics include:
