The intent of the psychology program is to provide a comprehensive plan of study that will introduce students to many subfields of psychology and prepare them for careers in a number of human services careers as well as graduate and professional programs. Graduate degrees are required to pursue licensure as a psychologist, counselor, or social worker. Waldorf College psychology majors should be prepared to enter these degree programs upon graduation. Through graduate studies, students may choose to specialize in areas including clinical, experimental, developmental, social, cognitive, human factors, sports, industrial/organizational, health, and forensics.
Waldorf’s Communications concentration provides hands-on experience with current technologies, providing students with a creative, project-based experience. Complementing the bachelor’s degree in Psychology, this concentration focuses on the use of media to influence human thought and behavior. Students will explore a variety of areas within communications including: digital production and social media (COM 1020), graphic design (COM 1010), and the relationship between mass communication and pop culture (COM 1030). Students can also explore either journalism (COM 1040) or critical thinking skills for visual media (COM 2010).
Estimated time of completion of this program is 4 years for full-time students.
