As a psychology major, you will develop strong critical thinking, problem solving, and oral and written commination skills through our course offerings and opportunities for discovery-based learning outside of the classroom. Our curriculum begins with a broad overview, giving you an understanding of the core content areas of psychology and the methods and statistics used by psychologists. Beyond those survey courses, you will be required to take a senior level seminar in which you will study a specific topic in-depth. You can also receive course credit for conducting independent research or completing an off-campus internship. Whatever your career goals may be, the skills and experiences you gain through our program will be indispensable in graduate school or in your future career.
