The Department of Psychology attempts to provide the student with an in-depth understanding of human behavior, stressing its complexity, development and integration. The department is committed to a broad interdisciplinary study of humanity. Because psychology is an empirically-based discipline, the scientific nature of psychology is emphasized in both general and specialized courses. The Psychology curriculum is designed to meet the diversified needs of today's students. For the Psychology major, this includes an integrated sequence of learning experiences that prepare the student for multiple career options after graduation. In view of the importance of advanced degrees in psychology, a thorough preparation for graduate work is emphasized. An undergraduate major in psychology is the best preparation for graduate training in psychology and is also an acceptable major for graduate study in a variety of related fields. Bachelor's-level career paths are also frequently pursued by graduates of the department (e.g., in business, government and clinical settings).
