Minor in Psychology

 

The Psychology program develops a balanced appreciation for the discipline as a science (which seeks to discovergeneral principles of human experience and behavior), and as an art (which effectively applies these principles to the unique individual). The program aims to provide information, activities, and demonstrations that provide the motivation and thinking tools to explore the interface between the mind and a person’s body, values, family, and culture.
