College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences

Psychology and Sociology

Our department offers BA degrees in both Psychology and Sociology and an MS degree in Marriage and Family Therapy. We also offer minors in Psychology, Sociology and Criminal Justice. We comprise two of the many exciting academic disciplines within the College of Letters, Arts and Social Sciences, and our students and faculty are committed to Cal Poly Pomona's "learn by doing" philosophy. The mission of the Psychology and Sociology Department is to prepare students for success at school, work, home, and in society through involvement in education, research, and professional activities.

We are dedicated to the belief that immersion in multifaceted and complex social and academic experiences help students understand social relations more clearly, manage their interpersonal relations more effectively and grow in self-understanding. Our department models life-long learning through improvement in educational philosophy and practices, both inside and outside the classroom.
