Psychological Science

Psychology is an area of study that will help you understand human behavior and mental processes, allowing you to better understand how one thinks, acts, and feels.

The Department of Psychological Science offers the B.S. and A.A. degrees, which are focused on the science of behavior and the mind. Students completing a major in psychology will be prepared to pursue a range of careers at the bachelor’s level or to pursue advanced training in psychology or other professional schools.

"I decided to take on college full time and quit my job when I came to terms that I had reached the level I wanted to reach within my job," Smith said. "I had never attempted to try out the major I had always wanted to, which was psychology."
