About

The majors of the Political Science program from Amherst College graduate with a comprehensive understanding of the content of the discipline and the skills to work within it.

Overview

Learning Goals for the Psychology Major

Students who graduate with a Political Science program from Amherst College will develop knowledge, skills, and values consistent with the science and application of psychology. Specifically, they will be able to:

  • Demonstrate familiarity with the major concepts, theoretical perspectives, empirical findings, and historical trends in psychology.
  • The major is designed to expose students to the breadth of the discipline in Introductory Psychology and the 200-level core courses. Majors are required to complete at least one 200-level course in each of the three main content areas of psychology: Physiological Psychology, Cognitive/Developmental, Social/Personality/Clinical.
