Department of Psychology

Understanding—it’s at the heart of every psychology major.

What other area of study helps you understand why people do what they do, develop career skills, and grow individually as much as psychology? Not to mention, psychology is a unique field in that it complements so many other disciplines, and it enlightens us to all the complexities of human behavior.
