The Spring Hill College Department of Psychology provides practical education and field experience to enable students to find jobs in psychology-related fields immediately after obtaining the bachelor’s degree.
We also prepare students for graduate training in clinical psychology, school psychology, counseling, and a wide variety of experimental psychology programs. A unique feature of Spring Hill’s program is the emphasis on high standards of academic scholarship and research, community service, and personal growth.
The Department of Psychology has three goals:
(1) to contribute to the students’ liberal education and to help the students learn more about themselves so that they may make effective decisions about their lives;
(2) to prepare students for graduate school if they wish to continue their education; and
(3) to give practical education and field experience to enable students to find jobs in psychology-related fields immediately after obtaining the baccalaureate degree. A unique feature of the program at Spring Hill is the dual emphasis on personal growth and high standards of academic scholarship.
Graduates of our psychology program often pursue graduate training for careers as counselors, therapists, and other mental health service providers. Our faculty provides students with ample career planning and resume building opportunities and advises them on graduate or professional schools if they choose to continue their education.
“The “Careers in Psychology” class really helped me to narrow down my choices of what I really want to do with my career when I finish school. It gave me great insights of what different careers require. At first, I wasn’t sure what I wanted to do; all I knew was that I wanted it to be in Psychology. Now the careers I am interested in are teaching, counseling and behavioral profiling.” — Katelyn Rogers
