UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
We would love for you to be a part of our department! We pride ourselves on being a strong program that welcomes both first-year and transfer students. Our policies allow us to accept multiple forms of PSEO and AP credit, as well as college credit earned through other colleges and universities. We pair all incoming students with a faculty advisor who works one-on-one with each advisee, providing individualized advice and guidance. In addition, all first-year students will have the benefit of enrolling in the Psychology Learning Community, our innovative cohort model that connects first-year psychology majors to the department and each other.
Unique Opportunities in Psychology
Collaborative Research: Carry out either individual or group research projects with a faculty supervisor. Each year our students present their research at regional and national conferences and most receive grant funding for their travel expenses.
Study Abroad: Travel to another country during the course of a regular semester or over the summer and earn credits toward the psychology degree. We have a variety of programs to choose from, including Wisconsin in Scotland and multi-city European Catalyst Program.
Internships and Career Planning: Develop your individualized career plan (a required part of our major) and gain some hands-on experience through an internship. Our proximity to sites in both Wisconsin and the Twin Cities give our students a unique advantage.
