Psychology is a science which searches for answers to myriad questions about behavior and thinking. Psychology is also a profession which is committed to helping people. Psychology is composed of several areas of specialization. Psychology majors study such psychological topics as the relationship between physiology and behavior, how people learn and perceive information, and factors that influence social, emotional and cognitive development in both adaptive and maladaptive directions.

A psychology major can help prepare students for a variety of goals, including preparation for graduate study in psychology or related fields, development of skills for paraprofessional employment, preparation for teaching high school level psychology or social studies, or preparation for employment in a business or industry seeking graduates with a broad education, flexible outlook, and ability to attack problems systematically.
