Psychology

We focus on research to better understand and predict human behavior.

The practical application of our coursework and our research contributes to the solution and prevention of individual and societal problems. The undergraduate psychology program permits flexibility for career planning and personal development by providing two degree programs and opportunities for double majors. This allows students to develop a second interest and better prepare for a variety of careers.
