Psychology is the study of human behavior and mental experiences like emotion and memory. As a Psychology major, you will learn how personal, psychological, social and environmental conditions influence action and thought. Through research and independent study, you'll learn how science is now better able to predict, understand and influence behavior. Because psychology is fundamentally about the study of human beings, it is applicable to a wide range of careers and graduate school options, including human services, education and business. 

This degree is available on-campus or fully online.

Psychology Courses

A strong grasp of psychology requires knowledge of each of its sub-areas. Students gain this understanding by completing courses in four main core areas: Physiological/Cognitive, Social/Personality, Developmental, and Clinical. They choose additional courses to meet individual needs with the help of a psychology advisor. Furthermore, students who major in Psychology learn to evaluate and conduct research, and to apply what they have learned in their courses to the world outside of the classroom. Learn More.
