Dr. Kenneth Clark

Welcome to the Department of Psychology!

Our department trains leaders in the science and practice of psychology. We offer a range of undergraduate and graduate programs in the fields of alcohol and substance abuse, mental health counseling, clinical psychology, general psychology and work psychology. Field work is an essential part of most programs and puts the classroom learning into real-life situations.

Have Questions? See our Frequently Asked Questions page. Then connect with a facilitator or an advisor if you still need help.

Alternatively, you can call in on your phone. The number is: +1 646 558 8656 US (New York). Use the meeting ID provided by each advisor.
NOTE: When you enter the Zoom meeting, you will be placed in a waiting area. You will be admitted into the room in turn by the advisor.

For REMOTE advising:

Email the Advisor. He or she will communicate with you via Email or arrange to speak with you on the phone.


STUDENTS: 

If you do not know how to do something or how to contact someone, talk to a student facilitator

If you need help with an individual academic problem or advice about the future, contact a faculty advisor.

The Psychology Department is trying to help students by offering help from student facilitators.  These students can show you how to register, declare a major or minor, get on a waitlist, access degree works, use CUNY schedule builder, use the F policy etc. They can help you find contact information for tutoring, financial and laptop assistance, counseling, the career office, the Psychology Club, the foreign language requirement and other CCNY offices.  If you don’t know how to do something or what the contact information for offices on campus are, contact a student facilitator.

Contact faculty advisors for advice about what classes to take, registering for particular classes, problems in your classes, graduate school and anything involving looking at your transcript or degree works.

Student advising will be on Zoom.  Open the Zoom links at the times shown below.  You may be put in the waiting room but the wait should not be long.
