As psychologists, our goal is to discover why people think, feel, and act as they do, and to use the knowledge we gain for human betterment. At SUNY Polytechnic Institute, we find our quest to be intellectually exciting, socially important, and personally rewarding. We believe that earning a degree in psychology can be a life changing experience.
