Message from the Psychology Department Chair

Thank you for showing interest in the Psychology programs at Southern New Hampshire University. Psychology is the largest major in the School of Arts and Sciences. Our programs include faculty who have won teaching awards and published books and journal articles. The Psychology program at SNHU emphasizes a balance of academics, field experience and research opportunities.

Our alumni have enjoyed successful careers in psychology. Many have attended master's or doctoral programs. The majority of students who opt to enter the work force right after completing their Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology have found jobs in mental health clinics, social service agencies and human resources.

Students join faculty in research groups that present at psychology conferences and publish in psychological journals. We also have a Psychology Student Association and an honors association, called Psi Chi.

We also offer opportunities for our students to focus on more specialized areas of psychology. We have concentrations in child/adolescent development, forensic psychology and mental health.

A counselor from our Admissions Department will be in touch with you as soon as possible to answer any additional questions that you may have. Please contact the Admissions Department at 1.888.327.7648 or email
