Overview

The psychology major at Carroll University offers courses in clinical psychology, social behavior, cognitive theory, biopsychology and neuroscience, which together offer a wide examination of human behavior, from the social animal to the cellular level. Your education will combine theory and practical research. 

You may find yourself studying what sort of music rats prefer, or how consumer decisions can be influenced by advertising. And you could work one-on-one with a faculty member over the summer on a Pioneer Scholars research project.
