Students who major in Psychology study a variety of areas within the broader discipline in preparation for graduate school, professional school (e.g., law or medical school) or post-baccalaureate employment. Students begin with basic content courses that introduce the areas within the discipline and basic skills courses that introduce research methodology and data analysis. A series of lab and non-lab elective courses permit students to tailor their major programs to their personal and professional goals. Students may earn up to 6 hours of credit for research. Students are encouraged to plan their curricula in consultation with Psychology faculty who can advise regarding course options, prerequisites, and realistic career objectives.
