Faculty and students work side-by-side on cutting-edge research and clinical projects in areas including health, forensics, cognitive, clinical psychology and more.

Department of Psychology

Drexel University’s Department of Psychology is a tightknit, active community of internationally known faculty and impressive student scholars.

Undergraduate and graduate students work alongside faculty on cutting-edge research and clinical projects in a range of areas, including health, forensics, neuropsychology, cognitive, human experimental, and clinical psychology. Undergraduates also benefit from Drexel’s cooperative education program, gaining hands-on, extensive work experience in areas of their interest.

Our new Psychological Services Center (PSC) is a clinic that provides high-quality, hands-on training for our clinical psychology doctoral students and allows us to offer cutting-edge, scientifically informed, and affordable treatments to residents of Philadelphia and the surrounding areas.

Located in the newly renovated Stratton Hall, the department features state-of-the-art research labs, a clinical training clinic, faculty offices, meeting rooms, and informal gathering spaces for faculty, students, and professional staff.

Student Organizations

The psychology community in our department is lively and fueled by two active student organizations, specifically for psychology students.

  • PSI CHI Honor Society - Provides academic recognition for inductees and encourages the growth of psychology through members' participation in psychology-related activities.
  • Psychology Club - Strives to promote interest in psychology through events, activities, and social interactions between students and faculty. By providing an informal context in which to discuss psychological ideas, we hope to highlight relevant issues within the Drexel community. Psychology Club welcomes students of all backgrounds and majors and contributes to campus life by hosting the tradition of Psychology Movie Nights with faculty guest-lecturers, offering article discussion events, organizing recreational bonding through Psychology Quizzo and game nights, and creating a relaxed forum for students and psychology professors to interact informally.
