Undergraduate Major


The objectives of the Department of Psychology are to enrich your understanding of the behavior and cognitive processes; to have you adopt a rational, objective, experiential understanding of behavioral and psychological processes; and to develop the critical thinking abilities that will permit you to distinguish between scientific and nonscientific explanations of behavior.

The department adopts a biopsychosocial view, one that explains behavior as a function of both organismic and environmental conditions.

You will be introduced to the current body of knowledge in psychology; its data, methods, and theoretical formulations in the principle fields.
