Whether you want to direct professional research in psychology or other health professions, advance social policy through public affairs, or guide others to happier and healthier lives, St. Ambrose prepares you to reach your goals.
Our graduates work at the Veterans Administration, Lutheran Social Services of Illinois, Families First Counseling Services, Quad Cities Autism Center, and U.S. District Court, Southern District of Iowa.
Our Behavioral Neuropsychology program draws from diverse subjects, including psychology, biology, and chemistry. Students study the organization and function of the nervous system and its relationship to behavior, cognition, and disorders.
Our faculty has diverse experience in psychological research and clinical practice, which allows us to offer unique courses, research experiences, and internships that go far beyond traditional undergraduate programs.
Throughout your education, you will benefit from strong relationships with psychology faculty members who share their expertise in experimental, clinical/counseling, neuroscience, and forensic areas. Best of all, they believe their job is to teach and mentor.
Starting in your first year, you meet with a faculty member at least once a semester, or as often as needed, to discuss goals and ways to enhance your education. Their guidance continues through your senior year, as they offer career advice or help you with graduate school applications.
