The Psychology program provides a solid foundation for students to grow as mental health professionals by participating in internships, attending and presenting at psychological conferences, engaging in undergraduate research design, and preparing for graduate school. Students gain a significant understanding of the science of human behavior as well as the processes involved in normal and abnormal thoughts, feelings, and actions. Careers pursued by psychology graduates include work with counseling centers, criminal justice systems, drug or alcohol abuse programs, human services, mental health centers, and rehabilitation programs. Psychology majors are encouraged to participate in the Psychology Club, and students who meet the requirements are invited to join Psi Chi, the National Honor Society in Psychology.
