Psychologists are people-oriented and naturally inquisitive about patterns of behavior and the way the mind works. Through your studies, you will be able to answer questions you have about yourself and others.
Whether you choose to pursue a Bachelor of Art or Bachelor of Science in Psychology, you will gain a deeper insight into the thought, emotion, and behavior while strengthening your interpersonal and analytical skill set.
Psychology is both an applied and academic field, meaning that you can't uncover all you need to know in a textbook, you'll need to explore for yourself. There are many clinical and counseling organizations in the surrounding area that you can intern with, providing hands-on learning opportunities and the insight and skills needed for further studies or a career in the field.
The Psychology department consists of a diverse group of research-oriented professionals that have devoted themselves to the mentorship of undergraduates.
An abundance of hands-on experience will give you a competitive edge over other graduate school applicants. You’ll have 120-160 hours of hands-on learning culminating in either a peer-reviewed project or a portfolio.
You’ll have opportunities to take part in every aspect of the research process, including the study of human and non-human behavior.

Education should be a dynamic and interactive process. One of the most important roles of a professor is to impart professional experience as it applies to effective classroom pedagogy. However, student learning and motivational styles are always changing, so an effective educator must continue to improve one's craft by connecting with his or her students in ways that both sides realize their responsibilities in making classroom learning a collective, engaging experience.
