    What is a Summer Psychology Program?

    Explore the human mind while building a foundational for future academic and professional success in a Psychology Summer Program. These programs offers pre-college students both broad surveys of psychology and deeper examinations into certain subjects such as experimental psychology, research psychology, biopsychology, counseling and clinical psychology. Students learn to study human behavior, how the brain and mind interact, data analysis, research presentation and other skills. Guided by faculty and instructors drawn from professional fields, program participants learn the major forms of mental disorders, including Anxiety, Schizophrenia, Phobias, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Depression, Eating Disorders, and Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity. Interventions and treatment options are detailed, as well as the latest theories on the development of psychiatric disorders. Instructors use case histories, videos, and transcripts of clinical interviews to advance students’ psychological understanding. In addition to traditional psychology careers, these programs offer students a path to fields like child care, social work, probation and parole, law enforcement, rehabilitation and education. These unique summer programs offer a wide variety of platforms, whether in-person (residential or day/commuter) or virtual/hybrid. You can decide which format will work best for you, either due to personal preferences or your budget! Check out our listings to find the right one for you!
