Educating students in the various subfields of psychology

The mission of the USC Aiken Department of Psychology undergraduate program is to educate students in the knowledge, research techniques, basic and applied perspectives of the various subfields of psychology and psychological values. Students learn in an individualized learning environment, involving classroom, laboratory, and applied experiences.

The mission of the USC Aiken Master of Science degree program in Applied Clinical Psychology is to provide graduate students with opportunities to develop the knowledge, self-awareness, dispositions, and skills needed to become highly competent and ethical scientist-practitioners trained to integrate evidenced-based and multicultural practices in their professional work. We support students to extend these skills outside of the therapy room to be engaged members and leaders in their communities.
