The discipline of psychology focuses on the study of the individual person. Psychologists study processes and identify principles to help us understand events and experiences within the individuals – as well as our interactions with others and the world.
The Psychology Department serves three types of students: 1) those planning to attend a graduate or professional school in psychology or a related field; 2) those whose occupation or profession will require knowledge of psychology (teachers, social workers, counselors, etc.); 3) those who wish to pursue the content, perspectives, and methods of psychology for intrinsic reasons.
A Psychology Major is appropriate for a wide variety of careers. The members of the department will assist any student in course selection and/or thesis support suited for both personal interest and career advancement.
