Research and lab opportunities, combined with the availability of online and hybrid courses provide students with skills and knowledge about how psychology is applied in both the therapeutic and research settings. Required internship hours within the curriculum also provides students hands-on research in work environments. Graduates of the Psychology BA program will be prepared from a broad range of careers requiring an understanding of human behavior, and are also qualified to pursue graduate study.
This course considers questions about human development, personality structure, mental health, illness, and interventions from a comparative, cross-cultural perspective.
