Psychology Degrees

Psychology is the scientific study of behavior and mental processes and, as such, is a diverse field that touches all aspects of human endeavor.

We provide you with current knowledge through learning experiences in and out of the classroom that will increase critical thinking skills, equip you with research methodology, and prepare you for employment in business, education, community agencies, other professional areas, or graduate school.

Curriculum in psychology is based on American Psychological Association principles for training students to be behavioral scientists and to use their training to inform their practice as professionals.
