Psychology Major

General

Program Description

The psychology program delivers a vibrant, active, engaging learning experience within a department that is as closely-knit as any other on campus. You’ll be guided by fun, enthusiastic, accomplished faculty who truly embrace their roles as mentors to their students. In addition to studying the major theories, methodologies, applications, and databases used by psychologists, students also develop essential skills in communication and critical thinking. Small group projects will enable you to bond with fellow students, and you’ll find regular opportunities to take your learning experience beyond the classroom through research, practicums, experiential learning in mental health service organizations, and the activities of Psi Chi and the Psychology Club.
