The Psychology Department at Augsburg University offers a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology, with concentrations in clinical/counseling psychology, psychology and law, and social psychology. A Bachelor of Science in Biopsychology is offered in collaboration with the Biology Department. Our faculty is deeply committed to collaborative scholarship with students who regularly engage in a variety of projects funded by institutional or nationally-competitive grants resulting in products featured in both undergraduate and professional conferences. We are excited to enhance and expand the scope of these opportunities as we transition into the new Hagfors Center for Science, Business, and Religion this upcoming spring (http://www.augsburg.edu/hagforscenter/). Furthermore, each student in the major undergoes internship training to engage in the practice of psychology outside of campus leading to unique experiential learning opportunities in various community organizations or research settings.
The successful candidate will contribute to a richly diverse community of learners through excellence in teaching, conducting collaborative research with students, mentoring students in first-yearexperience courses, and by fully engaging with their Department, the College, their profession, as well as the wider community. Teaching responsibilities include courses in clinical/counseling psychology; research methods/statistics; and introduction to psychology. Other courses will depend on the needs of the department and candidate's area of expertise. The annual teaching commitment is typically six courses per year, and could include evening courses.
Among the distinctive features of the University are its deep dedication to civic and community engagement, and a strong belief in the integration of liberal arts and professional studies across all programs. The University's commitment to the local neighborhood and the world is enhanced through the work of four signature centers: the Christensen Center for Vocation, the Center for Global Education, the Sabo Center for Citizenship and Learning, and the Strommen Center for Meaningful Work. At both undergraduate and graduate levels, students actively engage in international travel and intercultural experiences that broaden their view of the world and deepen their engagement in it.
