Are you fascinated by human behavior? Do you want to understand how people think, feel, act and interact? Psychologists conduct studies to learn about what makes people the way they are — including their biology, environment and culture. This knowledge can be used to solve real-world problems in nearly every field, including business, counseling, teaching and technology, and help people who suffer from neuropsychiatric disorders or experience psychological distress.
You’ll begin your studies with a generalized psychology course to introduce you to the subject matter. And after taking the foundational research methods and statistics courses, you’ll be better equipped to take our advanced psychology courses. If you’re pursuing a bachelor of science, you’ll be taking a series of mathematics, chemistry and biological science courses on top of the depth subject matter. Bachelor of arts students will have the opportunity to take a number of humanities and/or science courses while completing the in-depth subject matter. Regardless of degree or area of study, the sky’s the limit when it comes to conducting original research, assisting faculty with their own projects or participating in an internship.
