Psychology is where the science of human nature meets the service of others.
What makes us tick? After a century of psychological science, we have some answers. But many questions remain too. In the Department of Psychology at Fordham, we emphasize critical thinking—and high expectations—as we challenge you to think scientifically about human behavior.
Our comprehensive and structured curriculum immerses you in the core processes of psychological science, from basic to complex. Learn to differentiate between an observation and a conclusion, evaluate research methods, explore cross-cultural differences, and understand the key role psychology can play in the service of others.
Through classroom instruction, adviser guidance, student research, and service learning, you will explore human nature, ponder questions of values and ethics, and begin to have an impact on the most marginalized members of society.
You’ll learn more than psychology here. You’ll also study philosophy, theology, history, mathematics, languages, science, and other performing arts through Fordham’s common core curriculum, the centerpiece of our liberal arts education.
We want you to excel in your field—and as a human being.
