Education

If you choose a concentration in cognitive neuroscience, you’ll combine courses in biology with psychology courses such as Neuropsychology, Sensation and Perception and Cognitive Psychology.

A major in I-O psychology prepares students for careers in human resources, line management, organizational consulting, or for graduate work in I-O psychology.

All students’ work will culminate in a research project, working closely with a faculty member, and presenting at a professional conference. Most psychology majors also qualify to participate in a Field Placement course to work in a setting of their choice during the spring of their senior year.
