Major program: The Psychology Department offers introductory courses to provide a general overview of the entire field. Statistics and research methods courses familiarize students with research tools and techniques. The breadth requirement courses assure that students take an array of medium-level courses that provide an intensive exposure to the theories, practices, and results associated with important investigative areas.
Three new components have been added to the psychology major: (1) a cultural immersion experience in a culture other than one's own, (2) a foreign language requirement, and (3) satisfaction of general education requirements.
Sample Courses: Discovering the Person; Psychopathology; Cultural Psychology; Feelings and Emotions; Seminar on Emotion; Myth, Magic, and Movies; Cross-Cultural Childhoods; Memory in the Movies; Psychology and the Law; Seminar in Eating Disorders
