The psychology department offers a psychology major and minor through both the College of Arts & Sciences and Hamilton Holt Evening School. We also offer courses that count toward the neuroscience and global health minors in A&S and toward the organizational behavior major and minor in Holt.
By gaining a foundation of the philosophy and principles of science, theory, methods, and statistics, you will apply psychological principles and methods to understanding and solving real-world problems.
Challenge yourself by questioning preconceptions, showing tolerance of differing views, and collaborating with faculty and peers on projects inside and outside the classroom.
With an emphasis on experiential learning and laboratory courses, the psychology major provides you an excellent background to join the workforce upon graduation or to continue your education in graduate school.
The Psychology program of the Hamilton Holt School provides an overview of the diverse field of psychology along with opportunities for application and demonstration of important principles.
Apply psychology to work-place areas such as leadership, group dynamics, personnel selection, worker motivation, and training.
