Courses in the department include Developmental Psychology, Personality, Abnormal Psychology, Social Psychology, Psychology of Gender, Media Psychology, and Consumer Behavior, among many others. The program prepares students to work in diverse psychology-relevant fields such as counseling, social work, advertising and marketing, education, medicine, law, public policy, quantitative data analysis, media communications, and more.
