Undergraduate Program

We are now supporting two majors: Psychology and Neuroscience. Consequently, this website is under construction. Feedback welcomed!

Our department offers two majors in our Psychology program, as well as our Neuroscience program. In addition, minors are also available.

Our degrees in psychology will help students become well rounded and educated citizens, who are prepared to interpret data and arguments. Psychology is excellent preparation for nearly any career in which an understanding of human behavior is important, and many of our majors go on to careers in law, medicine, education, policy, government, and academia, among others.

Our degrees in neuroscience prepares students for a variety of graduate (M.S./Ph.D.) education programs in neuroscience and related fields, including programs that feature studies in genetics and genomics, molecular and cellular neuroscience, systems neuroscience or cognitive science. Given the broad impact of neuroscience, our majors are increasingly south out by leaders in law, business, social sciences, arts, and humanities for collaboration where knowledge of the brain sciences address public policy, professional practice, and a broad understanding of human behavior.
