Welcome to the psychology department. Our goal is to provide students with a broad background in psychology, as well as to prepare students for graduate training or for entry into careers related to psychology. Modern psychology is the scientific study of brain, mind, and behavior, and is an exciting, rapidly expanding, and ever-changing field of scientific inquiry.

By enrolling in PSY 520, Internship in Psychology, psychology majors gain knowledge about a specific area in psychology, narrow career choices and clarify career goals. A preparatory course, PSY 519, helps students with the internship placement process.
