Syracuse University Reviews - Bachelor's in PsychologySee reviews of all programs at Syracuse University
Syracuse Universitys B.A. in Psychology program is good. Not great, but good. It focuses on the fundamentals of the science, but is limited in the experience needed to be ready for the field. Classes are interesting, but I found that most of them are classes which introduce you into the subject areas, including history and key words, and do not really give you hands on experience. Research labs are great to gain practice with experimentation, but does not fully prepare you for the job. This is similar for all psychology undergraduate degrees though, as furthering your education in a graduate degree is necessary in order to actually get a job in the field you want. Because of the size and population of the school, you do not receive much attention from your advisors, unless you put in the work to have them help you. Which is understandable, given that they are professors as well, however they do not give as much helpful information and guidance as you may have hoped without pushing them to it. It is an overall great school, and do not regret choosing it one bit!
Syracuse University has become my home away from home. I truly felt like I received the college experience from Syracuse. I felt academically challenged as I was able to maintain a social life. The possibilities of internships and research positions were endless, and my experiences that I had at Syracuse allowed me to follow my passion of helping people into graduate school at the University of Denver. I am forever grateful for my Syracuse experience and hope students who choose Syracuse will have the same experience.
Syracuse University is a great school for other majors like communication, business, technology, and engineering . The Psychology program at Syracuse University isn't as strong as one would hope. However, I appreciate the education and the support I received throughout my undergraduate career. If you are looking for a more rigorous psychology program, this might not be the place for you. However, the variety of programs and classes offered to students is great and one that I really appreciated.
Syracuse University is an amazing university. The faculty and staff are amazing. If you reach out, they will do everything in their power to assist you. The curriculum is challenging but there are many resources available to make the journey here a successful one.
Syracuse was a great experience. Started the program as a child and left as a young adult. I was challenged in many different ways on many different levels. I look back at my four years at Syracuse as among the finest in my amazing life. I would recommend this university to anyone looking for a solid education and a thirst for personal growth!!!
