Department of Psychology
The Psychology Department at Longwood University provides the highest quality instruction to undergraduate students with the goal of preparing them for a professional career or graduate study.
Students at any level of college can participate, starting freshman year. The earlier you start, the more likely it is that you'll have tangible evidence of your hard work (such as conference presentations and/or journal publications). To get started, simply think about what you would like to study and which faculty member you would like to work with.
