Exploring Human Behavior
Psychologists sort through the pieces of life's greatest puzzle—human behavior. Their goal is two-fold:
- To understand, explain and predict behavior.
- To apply this knowledge in solving practical human problems.
In addition to providing a strong foundation for graduate studies in the field, a degree in psychology prepares you for a number of related career and graduate study fields such as child development, biology, communications, criminal justice, health care (including medical school), law, philosophy, theology and more. A major concentration in Disaster Response is also available for Psychology majors.
Our program is the most comprehensive in the state of South Dakota; in fact, we've won several national awards for excellence. Our curriculum provides coverage of the core areas of general and experimental psychology as well as exposure to psychological applications in several areas.
