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.

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 do not know how to do something or what the contact information for offices on campus are, contact a student facilitator.
