The Department of Psychology performs three functions for students enrolled at Loyola University New Orleans. First, it provides pre-professional training for its majors, whether they plan to directly enter the workforce or to apply for graduate education in psychology or an allied field. Second, it provides instructional support functions for other academic divisions of the university, by offering psychology courses to students whose academic majors are not psychology. Third, it provides part of the liberal arts education for the Loyola student by teaching general courses which emphasize information and skills that are helpful in coping with an increasingly complex and rapidly changing world.
We expect that our psychology majors will leave Loyola with core knowledge and competencies including:
