Overview

Courses are designed to familiarize you with the major concepts, theoretical perspectives, empirical findings, and historical trends in psychology. In your senior year choose between an extensive review of the literature on a psychological topic, or an empirical research study that you propose and conduct independently. You present you senior comprehensive project to the Psychology faculty and your peers.

Why do more than half our students study abroad? Because we know there is value in expanding your awareness, experiencing other cultures and gaining a global perspective. And employers know it too! They want to hire individuals that engage in the world, not just study it. Over the years, we’ve developed a wide array of opportunities and relationships with communities around the world to make your experience a positive one. And they look forward to your arrival. Don’t be surprised when you arrive in your home-away-from-home to have locals say hello and recognize you're from Saint Mary's College.
