Western New England College is known for providing professionally focused programs with a solid liberal arts background. Located in the heart of New England's Knowledge Corridor, home to 26 colleges and universities, the College was founded in 1919. Its mission then was to serve the needs of part-time adult learners. Nearly a century later that commitment to providing programs convenient to working adults continues through more than a dozen graduate programs, including online study in the Master of Education in Curriculum and Instruction.


Psychology is the scientific study of behavior. In addition to helping students understand themselves and others, the research findings of psychology have wide application to many professional fields, from human services to medical, industrial, and educational settings. Within the major there is flexibility to select courses that meet individual career objectives. The Psychology Department offers students the opportunity to receive either the B.A. or the B.S. degree. The B.S. degree includes all of the requirements of the B.A. degree, along with an additional 12 credits of any combination of science courses, as well as an additional six credits of research courses in Psychology. Students interested in pursuing a research methods track should take one or more of our advanced research courses (PSY 35x on p. 315). Students interested in the Neuroscience major should see p. 159 for a full description of the Neuroscience program. Students may also pursue teacher certification at the elementary level by also majoring in Elementary Education, or receive training in special education by participating in the New England Center for Children program.
