Psychology
Programs

A diverse field of academic study and practical application, psychology deals with personal behaviors, such as a single individual’s mental life and personal development, abstract and philosophical issues such as the nature of knowledge, and how that knowledge depends on individual and cultural experience and biological variables. Students investigate how humans adapt to everyday problems, and how maladaptive behavior creates personal, interpersonal, cultural, and species difficulties, and how these difficulties can be avoided or removed.
