Psychology

Psychology is the study of human behavior. The major provides a foundation in human physiological, mental, intellectual, personality, and social development. Specific coursework is focused on research, theories and processes useful for understanding oneself and others as individuals and as members of various societies, groups, cultures and organizations. Psychology students are encouraged to think critically, to analyze and integrate information from other disciplines and sources, and to draw conclusions which can lead to the application of psychology to the identification and realization of individual and group goals. The study of psychology partners well with liberal arts course work and facilitates ethical thinking, self-awareness and empathy within a global community. Students are prepared for graduate study leading to professions in counseling and psychotherapy, teaching, church ministry, youth work, law enforcement, research, marketing, organizational development, personnel services, social advocacy, community services, rehabilitation, gerontology, social work, and life coaching.
