The Department of Psychology offers the student a major program that allows a choice of courses from among a wide variety of fields in psychology: biological, clinical, cognitive, cultural, developmental, health, and social psychology.
In addition to the considerable breadth offered, the program encourages the student to focus on more specialized areas through advanced coursework, seminars, and through supervised research. Several courses include individual research projects conducted under the supervision of faculty members.
Students have found that the major program provides a strong foundation for graduate work in psychology and related fields. Psychology majors have also gone on to have successful careers in a variety of fields, including law, medicine, public health, social work, journalism, marketing, human resources, and other professions that demand a knowledge of human behavior.
