Major coursework focuses on appreciating and understanding the human condition from a scientific, psychological point of view. Students completing the major in psychology possess a breadth of knowledge pertaining to the major principles, theoretical approaches, and findings in psychology. Students develop the ability to not only understand psychological principles but to apply these principles, approaches and findings to individual, group, and social issues.  Upon graduating, students will be ready to apply  their knowledge and skill directly in the workforce or to pursue further interests in graduate studies. 

Psychology minor coursework focuses on appreciating and understanding the human condition from a scientific, psychological point of view. Students completing the minor in psychology possess a breadth of knowledge pertaining to the major principles, theoretical approaches, and findings in psychology. Students develop an understanding of the relevance and applicability of psychological principles, approaches and findings to individual, group, and social issues. Of particular emphasis are applications that are relevant to the relationship between humans and nature.

A psychology minor is richly supportive of any major as it prepares students to understand and analyze the social and psychological processes at work in any field of study or practical endeavor.
