B.A. in Psychology

Study the Trials of the Century and The Criminal Mind, learn how the brain works and shapes human interaction, and prepare yourself for a career as a psychologist, neuroscientist, or social worker. 

Psychology teaches us to listen more closely, think more empathetically, and understand the root causes of human behavior. By studying Psychology at Marymount Manhattan College, you are entering a dynamic field that leads to a variety of relevant careers.


Our curriculum combines traditional studies with emerging areas of the discipline, studying developmental psychology and neuroscience, personality and health psychology. At MMC, you can also supplement your degree program with one of our various minor programs, including Art or Drama Therapy, Children, Media, and Creativity, Forensic Psychology, Neuroscience, or Public Health.


Our professors help students conduct research, present at state and national conferences, publish articles in peer-reviewed journals, and find internships throughout New York that put their skills to use. Students have interned everywhere from Sesame Street and the District Attorney’s office, to Planned Parenthood and the New York State Psychiatric Institute.

We host an annual research conference and sponsor a chapter of Psi Chi, the International Honor Society in Psychology. Our most active students also join the Psychology Club, organizing field trips, fundraisers, and lectures by esteemed scholars.
