"Reflecting on my undergraduate studies, every professor and staff member whom I have
interacted with has made an impact on my Queens experience. The entire psychology
department has provided continuous guidance and support in regards to my academic
and professional goals."—Lena Etzel '17
Our psychology majors recognize that the best way to apply their knowledge and skills
is to engage in hands-on experiences. Our students have landed internships at:
Children's Miracle Network
IMPACT Family Violence Services
The Practice Institute
Psychiatric hospitals and offices
Social service agencies
After You Graduate
Queens graduates have gone on to study at Columbia, Georgetown, George Washington,
University of North Carolina and Wake Forest University, among others. Beyond the
clinical areas, psychology prepares you for further study in areas such as experimental
psychology, physical and occupational therapy, organizational science, law and medicine.
Queens students have the opportunity to participate in our international education
program. In the past, psychology students have traveled around the globe—as far as
China—to enrich their studies.
"The Department of Psychology was a reason that I felt confident making large decisions
or facing challenges. The Queens faculty truly understands the meaning of a small
campus professor-student relationship. When I started applying to graduate school,
my professors would sit and work with me through the applications."
