About the Psychology Degree Program

On Campus Online

Psychology is the scientific investigation of behavior and mental processes. A Psychology degree provides a solid foundation for understanding this discipline and illuminates some of life’s most important questions, providing us with a rich understanding of social influence, learning, human intelligence, the roots of personality, the effects of stress on health, and a myriad of other topics.

Courses from experimental, social, developmental, and clinical psychology assure well-balanced coverage of the entire field. Students are encouraged to explore their own interests in various areas of specialization including environmental psychology, psychology of gender, drugs and human behavior, and the psychology of criminal behavior.
