About The Department of Psychology at Hampton University

The Hampton University Department of Psychology is located within the School of Education and Continuing Studies, one of seven schools that make up the University. It currently offers an undergraduate curriculum leading to a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology, providing students with knowledge of psychology through the study of significant theories, research and applications.

The Hampton University Department of Psychology is one of the nation's leading departments for producing African American undergraduate psychology majors. In addition, it is one of the University's most successful departments in terms of increasing the number of students graduating annually, retaining students and graduating those enrolled.

The Department course and programmatic offerings serve three groups:

  • Students who elect to major in psychology.
  • Students in other majors that require psychology courses as part of their course of study.
  • Students who choose psychology courses to fulfill their elective requirements.

Either of the last two groups may choose a minor in psychology.
