The undergraduate program integrates a traditional psychology curriculum with a unique science and technology focus. Courses in experimental, developmental, abnormal, and industrial/organizational psychology foster the development of your analytical skills and encourage critical thinking, while a professional/technical core builds knowledge in a relevant area outside of psychology such as criminal justice, business, mathematics, computing, or engineering. The unique curriculum offers five tracks of in-depth, interdisciplinary study in developmental psychology, biopsychology, clinical psychology, cognitive psychology, and social psychology, allowing you to specialize in two areas of interest.
A graduate degree in psychology can lead to advanced career prospects. Our master’s programs combine focused coursework in psychology with applied experience, either through an internship or the completion of a research study and master’s thesis.
Contribute meaningful work to multiple fields of psychology while you explore and apply scientific methods to human development, social interactions, and behavioral relationships in a degree targeted towards your career aspirations.
The advanced certificate in school psychology is ideal for school practitioners who would like further professional development, or for individuals who would like to explore the dynamic field of school psychology.
