The School of Psychology, Sociology and Rural Studies, established as of July 1, 2021, is committed to providing a supportive and dynamic teaching and research environment that equips and inspires faculty and students to learn, create, and apply knowledge in psychology, sociology and rural studies. Through teaching, research, service and outreach, faculty will address challenges faced by the individual, society and the world.
Our School encompasses the broad scientific study of the person as an individual as well as the complexity of people as members of communities organized across multiple levels. Our School provides students with academic programs of study in preparation for critical and high-demand careers.
Our academic programs include undergraduate majors in criminology, psychology, sociology and a Masters in Sociology with specialization in community development. Our minors provide study in criminal justice, mental health services, psychology, social and human services, sociology and youth and community work.
