The teachers in the Department of Psychology are committed to providing our students a first-class education. The field of psychology has spent over 100 years conducting scientific research to better understand human behavior and mental processes, and a good deal of what it has learned will be imparted to you as a psychology major.
Majoring in Psychology
Psychology is an attractive major for many different kinds of people. Some students will use a psychology major to become an actual psychologist by attending graduate school and obtaining a doctoral degree, but a psychology major is also good preparation for other professional programs such as law school.
The strong academic background that students with a psychology major are given helps them compete well in educational and business settings, and also in related human service educational programs such as counseling and social work. We want you to excel in whatever career path you choose!
