Psychology (B.A.)

Recent advances in our scientific understanding of the brain and a long tradition of studying behavior make psychology an especially interesting field. Psychologists of the 21st century combine technology, behavioral studies, and neuroscience to help us understand thought and behavior.

In our B.A. program you will enrich your coursework by participating in an intensive, three-semester team research project. Guided by faculty members, our teams have studied mental health, social and personality psychology, cross-cultural development, neural activity, human motivation, emerging adulthood, and the effects of the media. 

Minors in psychology, counseling, media literacy, and neuroscience are also available at the College. All advanced classes take place in our modern facility, which houses 10 laboratories and offers specialized equipment and the newest computers.

Our students have gone on to medical school and graduate schools such as Columbia, Harvard, NYU, University of Michigan, and Syracuse University; others have pursued careers in marketing, law, banking, teaching, investment, and many other areas.
