At the undergraduate level, students gain an understanding of the methods and findings that characterize psychology as the science of behavior and mental processes. An honors track and programs leading to a minor in Psychology provide students with opportunities to develop skills and knowledge in the field of psychology that best suit diverse needs and aspirations.

Academic advising for freshman students is conducted in the Academic Development Center, while other students should see their advisor. Students can find who their advisor is by checking MyIUP.

Tutoring is available for PSYC 101 (General Psychology) and PSYC 290 (Research Design and Analysis I). 

The department offers a range of practicum experiences to help students gain experience, clarify interests, and apply knowledge. IUP’s chapter of Psi Chi, the honor society for psychology, provides recognition and opportunities for eligible students. You can get some forms you need through the dean’s office, and forms related to your major are also available on this website.
