Students can tailor the psychology program to their own interests, whether preparing for graduate school or for immediate employment. For minors or other non-majors, courses such as developmental, personality, social, gender, motivation and emotion, abnormal, industrial/organizational, and community psychology can complement their overall liberal arts education.

To fulfill the psychology major, a minimum of 44 credits (approximately 11 classes) in psychology is required. Minors take Introductory Psychology and at least four other psychology courses for a minimum of 20 credits.


Some psychology courses:
  • Introduction to Psychology
  • Applied Behavior Statistics
  • Research Methods
  • Cognitive Psychology
  • Theories of Personality
  • Physiological Psychology
