Counseling and Psychology
Undergraduate Student Experience
Instruction | Facilities | Research
Our personal approach to research necessitates close contact with instructors and fosters an apprenticeship system. To facilitate this format, research-oriented courses typically are small and have fewer than 15 students.
The psychological laboratories are equipped for studies in group dynamics, learning, cognition, perception, development, human physiology, and industrial psychology. In addition, the laboratories include facilities for computerized data collection and analysis.
This research training culminates in a senior thesis of the student's own design. Some of these research projects are presented at regional and national psychological conventions or published in scientific journals.
Practica | Field Trips | Conferences
In addition to the formal classroom and laboratory training, practica are available for the students to gain experience and test their vocational aspirations in a variety of applied settings.
We also have an active psychology club that invites guest speakers of interest, makes field trips, and attends state and/or regional psychological conventions.
Tennessee Tech has a chapter of Psi Chi, the national honor society in psychology.
