Why Study Psychology at Lewis-Clark State College (LCSC)?

LCSC has an excellent Psychology program taught by highly motivated, caring, intelligent professors. Unlike many large universities, in which the professors are devoted to securing research grants, performing research, and typically not having as much time for their undergraduate students, LCSC professors find their lives fulfilled by being outstandingly effective teaching professors. LCSC students rate their Psychology professors very highly in the anonymous student course evaluations every semester. LCSC offers an internship program for every qualified Psychology major. This means that, during your senior year, you will be placed in a real agency, working with a real psychologist, doing real psychological work (such as counseling). We also have a very strong sequence of research courses, which prepare you to understand and perform research. Due to experiencing both an internship program and a research program at LCSC, our students find themselves to be much better prepared to be successful in graduate school than many of their cohorts. Nearly all (over 90%) LCSC Psychology majors either secure employment upon graduation or are accepted into master's programs in Psychology and Counseling.


The Beautiful Campus of Lewis-Clark State College

Lewis-Clark State College is a public institution (i.e. it is governed by the State of Idaho) that was founded in 1893. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of over 3,600 students and a very beautiful campus situated on 46 acres (.2 square km). In 2016-2017 international student tuition and fees is $17,620 with a $3,500 scholarship for all students with GPA 2.5 or better. After 1 semester at LCSC, based on GPA, this can rise to $5000 per year. The reputable magazine U. S. News and World Report ranked LCSC as the 5th best 4-year public college in the entire Western United States (which includes such large states as California and Texas). Parents love LCSC because it is in the small town of Lewiston (population in twin cities of Lewiston and Clarkston is just 55,000), in semi-rural Idaho, far, far away from the dangers of a big city.
