Psychology is an interesting and practical major that provides an understanding of people’s behavior and thought processes. Psychologists uncover the links between biological processes, environmental influences and human behavior. Because psychological principles help to explain a wide range of behaviors, students are prepared for a variety of careers. MSUM’s psychology faculty are knowledgeable and student-focused, and our well-equipped facilities are designed for student research.
Students begin with an introductory-level series of courses, followed by courses in statistics and research methods. Students may specialize in areas emphasizing graduate school preparation or for work in the profession by taking upper-level courses in learning, personality, cognitive psychology, abnormal psychology, clinical psychology, social psychology, developmental psychology, physiological psychology, or the psychology of women.
An important quality of MSUM’s psychology program is the science/research orientation built into the curriculum. Students work closely with faculty on research projects in their rea of specialty, and the department houses psychology labs of exceptional sophistication for a university its size. Eight labs provide opportunities for students to carry out experiments in many specialty areas, including infant perception in our child development lab or body image perception in our social psychology lab.
