Undergraduate Program

Psychology is the scientific study of behavior. Psychology is studied as a science with the implication that there is a commitment to rational thinking and empirical analysis of the problems encountered in describing and explaining human behavior. Our integrated four part curriculum provides students with a broad introduction to the field, emphasizing the understanding and design of research. A wide range of subfields of Psychology are offered through courses that emphasize our biological heritage (e.g., Physiological Psychology) to those that examine basic human functioning (e.g., lifespan development, cognition, personality, social) and those that have an applied orientation (e.g., counseling, behavior modification, and community psychology).
