Psychologists study the human mind, exploring a variety of interesting questions that explain human behavior and responses. Psychologists do research and conduct studies, make observations, and help others understand and improve or modify their behaviors. Students in the psychology program at Valdosta State University's Online College focus on areas including learning, cognition, intelligence, motivation, emotion, perception, personality, mental disorders, and the ways in which individual preferences are inherited or shaped by the environment.
