NMU psychology courses emphasize the principles and theories of psychology, and students have the opportunity to apply this knowledge as they work alongside our distinguished faculty in clinical and research settings.
The Psychology Department is an Academic Department, we do not provide counseling services. To contact Counseling and Consultation Services, please call 906-227-2980.
Students majoring in behavior analysis have the opportunity to treat children with Autism and related disorders in community settings in the department's clinic for Applied Behavior Analysis. Students also have the opportunity to work alongside psychology professors on ground-breaking research, such as testing new classes of drugs for mental disorders, learning how the brain responds to emotional stimuli, learning about the way humans sense and perceive the world, and even unraveling historical origins of psychology and neuroscience.
Graduates are well-prepared for careers in research, human resources, criminal justice, childcare or education, among others. Many continue their education toward becoming psychologists. The psychology job market is expected to grow by 15 percent.
