The Department of Psychology at ACU is committed to training and mentoring students in applied research.

ACU psychology students regularly present research in the professional or scientific programs of regional and national psychology meetings. The practical necessity and the ethical responsibility to master the rapidly expanding scientific base of information underlying clinical intervention is emphasized through course work, individual and group projects, and thesis research. In each of the Masters of Science programs offered in psychology, students have the opportunity to build expertise in their field of interest and to prepare to contribute to that knowledge base. The psychology department actively supports student research.

  •  Psychological Assessment
  •  Child and Adolescent
