The Psychology department offers a Certificate in Program Leadership and Evaluation for professionals looking to enhance their leadership and administrative skills. The Graduate Certificate in Modern World History is designed to give educators and history lovers desired coursework to expand their marketability and knowledge.

The school also offers programs of study for those students looking to extend their knowledge without majoring in one of our fields. Minoring in one of our major fields or Pre-Law is an excellent way to build your credentials.

Each program provides students with a challenging curriculum where students learn the skills that employers demand, such as written and oral communication, critical thinking, and teamwork. Our graduates are employed at all levels of government, at non-profit agencies, and at businesses of all kinds. Take a look at some of our recent success stories.
