Psychology (PSYC) - (ARCHIVE)

PROFESSOR BARBARA BREMER, School of Behavioral Sciences and Education

The Psychology major emphasizes the scientific study of psychology, including areas such as abnormal psychology, cognition, developmental psychology, learning theory, physiology, and social psychology. Knowledge of research methods and statistics are developed in the study of psychology.

Undergraduate Psychology students typically prepare for careers in human services fields, applied behavioral fields, or human resource management. The Psychology program is also designed to prepare students for graduate education.

Research is encouraged in the program. The curriculum is designed to develop analytical thinking and critical thought to accurately interpret research. In addition, applied or hands-on courses are available for students aiming to develop their clinical and counseling skills. Assisting faculty members in conducting research is strongly encouraged.
