In the classroom and in the lab, become a critical consumer and producer of knowledge of human behavior.
Our Psychological Science major and minor develop a broad background in psychological science, the theoretical frameworks used to study human behavior, empirical research and lab experience, and the sociocultural contexts of human behavior.
As a major, you’ll:
- receive a broad introduction to the methods and perspectives of psychology
- learn about research design and statistical methods
- take laboratory courses

Research is the key to this major. All seniors complete an empirical research investigation, and all of our faculty members have active research labs.
