About Susan Nolan

I started my academic career at Seton Hall University after receiving my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Northwestern University and completing my clinical internship through the Vanderbilt University/Nashville Department of Veterans Affairs Internship Consortium. Since arriving at Seton Hall, I've taught a range of courses, but my favorites are Mental Health (formerly Abnormal Psychology), International Psychology, Introduction to Psychology, and Statistics. I also enjoy translating my teaching into writing, and have co-authored several textbooks for Worth Publishers/Macmillan, including textbooks for statistics and introduction to psychology.

I have been involved in international psychology throughout my career. I have developed a course in international psychology at Seton Hall, served as a United Nations representative for the American Psychological Association for five years, and conducted research on international psychology education as a U.S. Fulbright Scholar in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Australia.

I am currently pursuing several lines of research, and welcome undergraduate and graduate student involvement. First, I am interested in perceptions of people with psychological disorders, including the stigma associated with mental illness. Second, I study the education and career trajectories of women and men pursuing professions in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields. Finally, I study misinformation and scientific literacy, including in the classroom.
