The Department of Psychology and Counseling occupies the first floor of Lowrey Hall, a stately building that looks onto the lawn and gardens of the quadrangle, or Quad, the center of the Mississippi College campus for most of its 183 years. Located opposite Lowrey Hall on the Quad is Provine Chapel, a building rich in history and the site of numerous special events throughout the year. The faculty has offices on the first floor of Lowrey Hall and teaches most of their courses in classrooms throughout the building.
As a psychology major, you will be assigned an academic advisor from among the full-time faculty teaching in the department. You will meet with your advisor regularly to plan class schedules and discuss ongoing opportunities and concerns related to campus life. Department faculty and staff have state-of-the-art computer systems connected to the internet. As a student, you have access to computer labs in Lowrey Hall, as well as in Self Hall just across the street. Students can obtain a computer account that allows them access to the internet. In addition, the computers are loaded with all of the regular software packages needed to do the word processing, data entry, and data analysis.
The department's videotape equipment and rooms are available for undergraduate and graduate students use when completing courses that deal with counseling skills or special research. The Mississippi College Library and Learning Resources Center offer journals, books, videos, and CDs on a wide range of psychology and counseling topics.
