Psychology is the study of human and animal behavior and the psychological, social, and biological processes related to that behavior. The curriculum emphasizes methods of conducting research and understanding behavioral data.
The program provides a strong, broad-based education. Students study all aspects of psychology and, through research, can pursue an area of interest such as clinical, counseling, developmental, experimental, industrial-organizational, physiological, or social psychology through their choice of courses.
Graduates receive a B.S. and are prepared for positions in community agencies, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, prisons, schools, industry, and government agencies. It is important to note, however, that a career as a professional psychologist requires graduate training.
