Welcome to the Undergraduate Program in Applied Psychology
The Bachelor of Science Program in Applied Psychology is an interdisciplinary program designed to develop students who are able to bridge psychological theory, research, and practice in a multicultural world.
A hallmark of our program is the fieldwork sequence which offers students the opportunity to apply the knowledge gained in lectures and readings to research and other real-world experiences. Additionally, our department offers students various opportunities to collaborate with faculty members; students may choose to participate in the Honors Program and conduct an independent research project under the guidance of the faculty mentor or volunteer as research assistants in faculty research teams. We also welcome students to participate in various study abroad programs offered at NYU.
NYU's Applied Psychology major provides excellent preparation for graduate programs in applied psychology, psychology, and psychology-related areas as well as graduate programs in business and law. Students interested in counseling and guidance, school psychology, ecological and community psychology, human development, social work, and applications of psychology in community-based settings are best served by the Applied Psychology major in Steinhardt.
Throughout this site, you will discover information that will help you navigate through the major, and learn further about what the program has to offer.
The Department of Applied Psychology also offers a combined major with Global Public Health and two undergraduate minors, which are open to students throughout NYU:
- American Sign Language (also offers stand alone courses)
- Child Development and Social Intervention (not available to majors in Applied Psychology)
