Department of Psychology



Develop a deep understanding of human behavior.

The study of psychology will help you understand the ways in which humans think and arrive at decisions. Understanding and unlocking these patterns can be the key to a more successful, productive and fulfilling life. You will also learn key scientific research techniques and apply quantitative and qualitative means to solve problems or explain observations.

Our psychology degree programs provide you with several career options. Psychologists work in a wide variety of different contexts, including clinical, legal, organizational, educational and research settings in both the private and public sector. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in psychology, counseling, human resource management, or want a useful and fascinating academic springboard into any profession, an understanding of human interaction is helpful in many career fields.

    "I love Psychology - you get a great understanding for the social reactions and interactions you have with people. It helps explain a lot of different things that really go unnoticed by people who don't study it."
