Welcome to Rowan University's Department of Psychology

Dr. Mary Louise E. Kerwin
Department Head and Professor

The mission of the Psychology Department at Rowan University is to provide a high-quality education to undergraduate and graduate students, engage in cutting-edge research in a variety of disciplines and subdisciplines within psychology and to provide services to children and their families in the South Jersey region. To achieve our mission, the department offers two undergraduate degree programs: Bachelor of Arts in Psychology (33 credits) and a Bachelor of Science in Psychological Science (60 credits). We also offer a Concentration in Neuroscience in conjunction with Biological Sciences as well as a Specialization in Behavioral Services for Children and their Families. At the graduate level, we offer a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology and three Master of Arts degrees in Applied Behavior Analysis, Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and School Psychology. Students in our department have the opportunity to work with faculty members on novel and innovative research across the diverse subfields within psychology as well as being placed in community agencies and businesses to experience first-hand how psychological science is applied to practice.

Our faculty consists of 16 full-time faculty members, 11 instructors, and over 40 dedicated adjunct faculty members. We are committed to supporting our students through our peer advisement, tutoring, and transfer learning community initiatives. I invite you to explore our site to learn more about our academic, research, and service activities. With the help of our current students, alumni, and our diverse faculty and staff, our department strives to provide the highest quality academic experience. We invite you to become part of the Rowan family and help us achieve our goals.

About the Rowan University Psychology Department

The objectives of the Psychology Department are to provide its students with the opportunity to appreciate psychology as both a liberal academic science and as an applied art, to fulfill their professional ambitions, to develop integrity, to understand and appreciate diversity and multiculturalism in all that they learn and practice, and to learn the skills and values that will equip them to benefit others.

Within the climate of a close knit academic community of learners and teachers, the Department offers coherent courses and programs of study in psychology at both the undergraduate and graduate level that are designed to give students the academic skills and knowledge they will need for reasoned inquiry, for the pursuit of advanced study, for a socially responsible service-oriented profession, for the development of a better understanding of social relationships and events, and for greater self-understanding.
