Dedicated to providing an inclusive education that focuses on the myriad intersections of people’s identities and interweaves a combined rehabilitation and mental health perspective into all coursework. The department philosophy is rooted in the concepts of inclusion, equity, advocacy, trauma-informed care, and positive psychology.
The VSU PhD program in Health Psychology has two specialized areas of study: Clinical Health and Behavioral and Community Health Sciences (BCHS). The Clinical Health specialization prepares students to work in applied settings, such as hospitals, physical rehabilitation settings, outpatient clinics, and other health services settings as members of multidisciplinary teams. The department is preparing the American Psychological Association self-study to pursue accreditation. The BCHS specialization will prepare students to conduct research and to develop/implement community interventions. Both areas of study emphasize research, grant-writing, and offer instructional opportunities.
The Master of Science in Psychology has concentrations in the following areas: General Psychology and Clinical Psychology.
The General Psychology concentration prepares students for doctoral work in psychology, to become college instructors, or researchers. The Clinical Psychology concentration prepares students to work in the public mental health sector including mental health agencies, prisons, and hospitals. Some students who complete the Clinical Psychology concentration choose to pursue the Qualified Mental Health Professional credential. At the conclusion of the Psychology program, students possess skills that are marketable and consequently are able to serve as effective agents of social change.
