Our program will push you to expand your thinking about human behavior. You’ll gain comprehensive knowledge of societal problems and how to help people to overcome their challenges. Because psychology is the study of people, you will have opportunities to apply classroom concepts by working with a range of ages and issues in diverse settings.
The real world will be your laboratory through internship options that could include assisting a professor with infant development research, working with refugees, helping people with disabilities to ski, and supporting activities and programs for young kids, teens, and older adults. You’ll graduate ready to stand out in the workplace or pursue graduate studies.
Our concentrations in health and sport psychology and pre-professional counseling offer a deeper study into growing areas of the field with internships that will further prepare you for a career or graduate school. Our graduates have pursued careers in a wide variety of sectors: human resources, school counseling, nonprofit development, medicine, and more.
