The field of psychology is exciting and diverse. The psychology department at Midland University approaches psychology as an academic discipline, profession, and science. Psychology at MU focuses on a scientific explanation of the underlying processes involved in human and animal behavior. Our program provides the foundational knowledge applicable to many career paths and the comprehensive background necessary for graduate study in psychology. Through internships, students have opportunities to gain clinical experience and job-relevant skills. We are also proud to provide one of the only minors in Applied Behavior Analysis in the region.

Faculty holds doctoral degrees in specialized areas of psychology and actively pursues professional interests in addition to their course instruction.
