Our major in Psychology distinguishes itself from other programs by approaching psychology as a science. We support this unique focus with a diverse faculty whose expertise extends into the areas of human development, clinical psychology, cognitive neuroscience, learning and memory, social psychology, the biological basis of behavior, and animal modeling.
Our program provides you with invaluable field experience, in which you apply the knowledge you gain and practices you learn on campus to real world problems.
In addition to the classes and opportunities for experiential learning we offer, your exploration of psychology occurs on a campus that bustles with the activity of undergraduates, graduate students and professional students aspiring to work in the sciences and in human and animal medicine.
If you are one of our many students who are interested in clinical/counseling psychology as a future health profession, we have faculty that can assist you in pursuing that career path.
In addition to the major, we offer a minor in Psychology.
We offer qualified students the option of participating in our Honors Program and graduating with Honors. This includes significant research, scholarship, or creative activity under the direction of a faculty member. You should consult with your major advisor or department chair for specific criteria and requirements.
