Psychology

Program Overview

Psychology explains general principles that govern behavior while recognizing individual differences. Psychology spans all aspects of human development, from prenatal development to addressing the needs of an aging population. Future psychologists can envision prospective work environments in anything from educational settings to private practices, human resources to not-for-profit community agencies, and scientific research centers to mental healthcare organizations.

The Psychology program will help you gain the skills to identify interrelationships between biological, psychological, and socio-cultural processes and utilize scientific findings and theories to generate new ideas and problem solve. For a truly limitless future, the study of psychology prepares you for endless career paths.
