Psychology

Studying psychology helps students gain an understanding of a) the mental structures and processes that underlie individual human experience and behavior, b) the scientific methodologies by which such a knowledge base is acquired, c) the critical thinking skills and skeptical inquiry necessary to evaluate scientific and popular claims concerning behavior, and d) the application of scientific psychological principles to personal and social issues. For a subgroup of our undergraduate majors (particularly those intending to continue into graduate study), we also seek to provide in-depth research apprenticeships in our faculty's laboratories.
