Society is more willing to address issues of mindfulness and mental health, and more people are getting the help they need. The world needs more psychologists, counselors, and behavior specialists than ever before.
Is it really possible for one person to have multiple personalities? What makes someone a psychopath? Why do people continue to vape when they know it’s dangerous? Our coursework focuses on more than just the foundation of psychology.
Our professors are actively engaged in research. Students have the opportunity to engage in the research process alongside professors investigating topics such as:
- Understanding and assisting children with developmental learning disorders
- Using eye-tracking technology to study human attention
- Examining minority students’ sense of belonging and its tie to academic success
We encourage our students to not only work alongside our professors on research, but to pursue their own inspirations and create new knowledge in the field as part of independent study.
