Psychology is the study of human behavior and social action in a variety of environments. To understand these complex interactions, students in the under-graduate and graduate programs of the Department of Psychology take courses in such areas as clinical, cognitive, developmental, industrial/ organizational and social psychology, as well as neuropsychology.
With strong instruction in basic principles and methodology, undergraduate students are well prepared with a broad-based liberal arts foundation, rather than narrow technical training, which relates effectively to a wide variety of life experiences and employment contexts.
In addition, a psychology major prepares students for graduate study in fields such as law, medicine, psychology, social work, public health administration and others. The department's graduate program offers study leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree and preparation for professional careers in a variety of settings such as higher education, industry and public health care.
Because everyone interacts with others, knowledge of psychology is a valuable tool for living. The department seeks to serve the educational needs of majors and nonmajors by providing courses designed to improve the quality of life in the home, community and workplace through enhanced understanding of human interactions.
