Overview

  • Psychology students investigate learning, health, social influences, perception, cognition, neuroscience, human development, personality and abnormal behavior. 
  • The study of psychology also involves learning how psychologists work, including the areas of experimental methods, statistical analysis and clinical psychology. All the while, students have opportunities to design, evaluate and conduct research or, depending on their interest, practice the hard and soft skills used in counseling, assessment and therapeutic intervention.
A Psychology degree prepares students for entry-level careers in human services, education, business and health-related fields. Many students plan to attend graduate school, seeking licensure or certification in clinical settings. Others go on to teaching and research-based careers.
