Psychologists investigate and seek explanations for the behavior and mental life of individuals in addition to developing methods for promoting psychological well-being. The psychology curriculum explores such topics as how brain function determines behavior; how we see, hear, and learn; what constitutes abnormal personality; how people develop emotionally and cognitively; and how individuals work in groups. A background in psychology helps prepare students for careers in teaching and research as well as in business, public and social services, education, mental health, law and medicine.
Behavioral Neuroscience focuses on the biological basis of human behavior. The program combines the disciplines of psychology and biology to provide an understanding of how the behavior of humans and other animals is controlled by physiological systems.
