What You'll Learn


As a psychology major, you’ll observe human behavior from critical perspectives: sociocultural influences to psychological disorders. Our exciting curriculum emphasizes skills in research and data analysis and exposes you to a knowledge base in human development, social psychology, psychopathology, cognition, personality and group processes to help you define your own focuses and interests. As a student, you will:

  • Explore psychology through a liberal arts lens, integrating your studies with other disciplines like philosophy, religion, sociology, biology and criminal justice
  • Learn to present and write compelling discourse on critical subjects
  • Examine how ethics relate to psychological research and practice
  • Learn the history of psychology
  • Understand the use of statistics, methodology, research design and psychometrics

Classroom instruction is enhanced by the mentorship and support of a dynamic faculty invested in preparing a nation of leaders, thinkers and researchers to serve global communities. You’ll build leadership skills, engage in community service and apply what you learn in the classroom to real-world experiences. However you choose to be a leader, you’ll graduate with the tools and abilities to be what you aspire to become.
