Hi there! Sounds like you've got a great plan looking at HBCUs for your psychology major. A couple of HBCUs stand out for psychology. Howard University in Washington, D.C., is one of the top-tier HBCUs known for strong academics, including its psychology department. They have various research opportunities that you might find appealing.

Another one to consider is Spelman College in Atlanta, GA, especially if you're a female student as it’s a women’s college with a good reputation for its social sciences. Additionally, Morehouse College, also in Atlanta, is a top choice for male students and prides itself on a strong liberal arts education with an emphasis on producing leaders.

It's worth noting that hands-on experience and internships are also crucial in the field of psychology, so you'll want to look into how these colleges support students in gaining practical experience. Make sure to reach out to the departments directly for more specific information on their psychology programs and research opportunities, and use virtual tours or campus visits to get a feel for each school's atmosphere and facilities. Best of luck finding the right fit for you!
