College of Arts & Sciences Psychology


Psychology is both a scientific discipline concerned with understanding, explaining and predicting behavior, and a profession dedicated to the application of this knowledge to the solution of practical human problems.  

Informal tracks (emphases) are available in human factors/applied industrial and human service (clinical/counseling) areas whereby students can work with their advisors to obtain a concentration of courses in an applied track.
