More about the Department of Psychology



To address a shortage of African Americans in the psychology field and the increasingly important role of culture in mental health, Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University responded by building its programs around a new framework.


Both the Bachelor of Arts (BA) and Bachelor of Sciences (BS) programs in psychology can lead to an advanced degree. If you have a BA or BS and would like a doctorate, you can apply to our master’s in community psychology.


Each year the Department of Psychology hosts a national professional conference and state/regional student research conference.
