Psychology is the scientific study of behavior, mind, and brain. We seek to understand how people think and act, both as individuals and in groups. The department has 15 faculty providing expertise in six subareas of study: cognitive, cultural, developmental, social, psychopathology, and neuroscience. Features of the major include foundational courses, training in statistics and research methods, a cultural immersion experience, small advanced seminars, and opportunities to conduct original research.
PSYC MAJORS MEETINGS, AY 2016
Overview of the Psychology Major for First-Year Prospective Majors
April 5th (Tues.), 12-1 pm, Judd 116
The purpose of this meeting is to provide an overview of the major specifically to first year prospective majors. Come and talk about the major with the department chair—bring all your questions—and better assess whether this major might be right for you. The chair will be available before and after the meeting to sign any forms (e.g., study abroad, transfer credits). This is the last meeting of the year.
Pizza will be provided.
The goal of the department peer advisor (DPA) program is to provide additional peer advising support to pre-major students and to answer questions about specific requirements for the psychology department. Click on the link above for more information.
