Hattiesburg, Miss., March 5, 2014 - The William Carey University Quality of Life (QOL) Project is a program that pairs students with adults with intellectual developmental disabilities to engage in activities designed to enrich their lives. Recently, the group made a trip to Memphis to visit the National Civil Rights Museum and tour Graceland. The program is funded through The Greater PineBelt Community Foundation’s Ann Morris Memorial Fund, which was set up by John Morris to honor the life of John’s late daughter, Ann, who was mentally disabled.

The Department of Psychology and Graduate Counseling at William Carey University offer undergraduate and graduate degree programs in a Christian environment which prepare students for rewarding careers in the helping professions or graduate studies in an array of fields.
The department consists of highly qualified faculty and staff dedicated to fostering an environment in which students develop an appreciation for scientific inquiry, critical thinking, creative expression, and service to others.

The purposes of the department of psychology are:

  1. To offer an undergraduate major in psychology that will serve as a concentration for the liberal arts student.
  2. To prepare students for graduate study leading to an advanced degree for the professional psychologist.
  3. To enable students to gain a better understanding of themselves and others and to learn to cope effectively with their environments.
  4. To provide services for other departments and schools within the university to supplement their curricula and to enable their students to fulfill the requirements for certification in their respective fields such as education, medicine, music, nursing, and religion.
