New psychology instructor at New Kensington to serve at Beaver and GA campuses

4/8/2011 —


Begins in the fall at
Penn State New Kensington, Beaver and Greater Allegheny

Neha Pandit has been hired as a regional instructor in psychology and will provide internship supervision for Penn State Beaver, Penn State New Kensington, and Penn State Greater Allegheny beginning in the fall semester. She will also deliver psychology courses at the campuses.

Previously, Pandit was an assistant professor and counselor at Georgian Court University, and an associate professor and course leader in psychology at London Metropolitan University. She was a psychologist with American Psychotherapy Associates in London and was a psychologist, EAP counselor, and instructor at the Outpatient Psychiatry and the Center for Cognitive Therapy for the University of Pennsylvania Health System.

Pandit holds a doctorate in counseling psychology from Temple University and a master’s degree in community counseling and a bachelor’s degree in sociology/criminal justice from George Washington University.

Psychology is the study of thinking and behavior. Penn State New Kensington offers two four-year degrees in psychology: bachelor of arts and bachelor of science. Hands-on involvement in research provides students a basic foundation of knowledge and critical thinking skills that can lead to a range of careers.

The bachelor of arts degree prepares students for careers that require a basic psychology and broader liberal arts background. Because the program is broadly based, the degree is geared to students who may be unsure of their future psychology career paths.

The bachelor of science degree includes options in science or business to suit a student's career goals. The science option helps prepare students for careers in developmental, clinical, social, or health psychology.  The business option helps prepare students for careers in industrial and organizational psychology or social psychology. Public and private sectors jobs include the fields of personnel sevices, management, advertising and marketing.

Pandit can be contacted through the Office of Academic Affairs at djm5@psu.edu or 724-773-3571.
