The Community Psychology program at Marymount College is an interdisciplinary program that exposes students to theory, research, and practice to address complex social issues and promote social justice.
Students interested in understanding, assessing, and influencing human behavior to increase quality of life are well-suited to pursue this applied field. A social ecological framework is used to assess and address social issues (e.g., homelessness, obesity, drug abuse, school drop-out, and violence) to ensure comprehensive social action.
