Welcome to the Department of Psychology at the City College of New York, a department that trains leaders in the science and practice of psychology. The department offers 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.

The Psychology Department is very pleased to announce that we are now conferring doctoral degrees in Clinical Psychology here at City College. We welcome the incoming 2018 class!
