Department of Psychology
The mission of the Department of Psychology at Cameron University is to prepare the diverse student body for entry level and advanced positions in the field of psychology, family studies, research, and service; to provide education that is focused on the principles of psychology and counseling that apply to work, family and responsible citizenship; and to prepare students for further education in the field, licensure, or related careers in order to support the cultural life and economic development of the region.
The Department of Psychology offers coursework leading to a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology, a Bachelor of Science degree in Family and Child Studies, and a Master of Science in Behavioral Science with General Psychology, Counseling, and Marriage & Family tracks.
- Provide mental health care to community members. Graduate students on the Marriage & Family and Counseling Tracks spend their last year providing mental health care to Lawton Fort Sill community members under the supervision of licensed professionals at the Cameron Psychology Clinic.
- Perform research with student-focused faculty members. Many of our students present their research at statewide, regional, and even international conferences!
- Join organizations that help foster your interests. Research focused students enjoy the monthly Research Club meetings at which research ideas are discussed. Students in the active chapter of Psi Chi, the National Honor Society for Psychology, perform many service activities including Box City, Big Pink Volleyball, and K9's and Kritters on Kampus and listen to great talks from community agency representatives.
- Choose a format that works for your schedule. Many of the courses can be taken in face-to-face or online formats. Graduate students on the General Psychology Track can complete their program entirely online. Marriage & Family and Counseling Track courses are only offered in a face-to-face format.
