Psychology is the science of the mind and behavior. The discipline involves the examination of all aspects of the human experience, including functions of the brain, neuroscience, child development, memory, and clinical disorders and treatment. An undergraduate education in psychology provides preparation for graduate training in psychology, medicine, social work, allied health professions, education, business, computer science, or law. The undergraduate degree directly prepares students for careers that require knowledge and understanding of behavior, research design, and the ability to collect, analyze, and interpret data.
We offer both a major and minor in Psychology.
The Communication Sciences program provides an undergraduate major that focuses on foundation training in the area of speech-language pathology and audiology. Speech-language pathologists and audiologists are professionals who provide assessment and intervention services to persons with communication disorders.
The Communication Sciences program also provides a minor in Communication for Health Professionals. The minor offers introductory and advance study in theoretical and practical application of communication within a health context and includes a variety of additional courses that students can choose as they apply to their more specific areas of interest such as medicine, nursing, and dentistry.
