The undergraduate program in the Department of Psychology offers the student an opportunity to appreciate psychology's diversity and its applications. Courses are offered in clinical, social, personality, developmental, physiological, and experimental psychology as well as neuropsychology, cognitive neuroscience, and psychopharmacology. Advanced special topics courses in these and related areas are often available. Students may design programs that approach psychology as a social science, a natural science, or a combination of the two. Advanced students have the opportunity to become actively involved in both psychological research and paraprofessional counseling. During their junior and senior years, majors are encouraged to take small, specialized seminars and engage in supervised independent study. Undergraduate majors also have opportunities for internship experience with community mental health agencies and may participate in ongoing research within the department. The program is sufficiently flexible and broad to satisfy career goals and provide a solid background for graduate study. Students interested in careers such as those in research and teaching, mental health professions, and personnel and industrial psychology will want to choose curriculums suited to their goals. The breadth of the field of psychology and of the department's course offerings make careful planning important. Students should consult their faculty advisors in planning their schedules as well as to get career-related guidance.
