School of Psychology
Welcome to the Undergrad Programs web site of the School of Psychology!
The Florida Tech Psychology Undergraduate Programs are designed to develop and train competencies that prepare our graduates to succeed in their chosen career paths, including graduate study, industry employment, as well as military and government service.
We expand upon our offerings in the core areas of psychology and offer students concentrations through which they can build depth as well as breadth knowledge. Your choices of psychology concentrations include: Clinical, Applied Behavioral Analysis, Animal Training, Industrial-Organizational, Sports Psychology, Forensic psychology and self-designed concentrations.
Our mission is built on the Florida Tech motto: “High Tech with a Human Touch.” The programs of the College of Psychology and Liberal Arts are the Human Touch of the University. Our diverse psychology curriculum is enhanced by a research active PhD level faculty, a small student-teacher ratio and off-site internships to broaden and apply academic knowledge.

- Application of statistical principles for quantitative and qualitative analysis of social and behaviorally relevant data
- Ability to apply knowledge of the social and individual bases of behavior to the analysis of group and individual actions
