Applied Psychology Mission

The Bachelor of Science Degree in Applied Psychology objectives are to train students with the skills and knowledge to apply psychology to human services fields at an entry level position under the supervision of a licensed professional. Graduates will be prepared to work under supervising professionals with people in a client setting in order to assist, supervise, rehabilitate, and remediate personal and family issues with various populations. Career objectives for this program include producing educated and skilled graduates who are qualified and employable at the bachelor’s level for local and national agencies such as the Department of Social Services, United Helpers, NYSARC, and the Office for Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services. Students in the program may pursue a ‘generalist’ degree or a more specific focus. Specifically, students interested in a chemical dependency focus may pursue certification as a Certified Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC).
