Program Overview.

Psychology is the study of human mind and behavior. A general psychology major is the best choice if you wish to sample many areas within the psychology discipline. This major will allow you to tailor coursework and research to your specific interests. Like the more specialized psychology majors, it is an excellent option if you are considering graduate school after completing your undergraduate degree.
