Psychology is the scientific study of the brain and behavior. Psychology majors examine human behavior, experiences, and the functioning of the mind in relation to heredity, development, personality, and social functions. Students majoring in psychology complete requirements for a Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) degree.
The psychology major is designed to give students the academic foundation for success in graduate study and for applied areas of psychology such as social work, counseling, education, business and human services.
