What will I learn?

Curious why people do what they do? Students in the psychology program explore a broad range of psychological fields, including child development, abnormal behavior, human social functioning, the study of the brain, and research methods.

They also engage in an array of assignments and activities designed to bring course concepts to the real world, including writing case studies of abnormal behavior, engaging in child observations, and performing an original research study.

People who study psychology most often become employed in the helping professions such as counseling, social work and therapy.
