Why General Psychology?

In a word, flexibility. Our General Psychology program is designed to afford students the opportunity to follow their interests. Our core courses provide you with solid preparation in research methodology, developmental, clinical, and community psychology. Our faculty have diverse research and applied interests, so in developing the planned program of study students may work with one or more professors to map out course selections. For example, recent students have focused their programs and conducted research in cross-cultural studies, diversity issues, racial identity, problem gambling, sexual assault and witness credibility, neuropsychological functioning, seasonal affective disorder, trauma, psychological adjustment, developmental issues, and the impact of electronic media on our lives.
