You Have Lots of Opportunities

Our diverse faculty study and teach courses that cover an amazing range of human behavior from the psychology of horror films to how to prevent bullying in schools, from how the human brain processes language and memory to the predictors of job performance. Or perhaps you are interested in families, addictions, or how to help gifted and talented students flourish. In that case, you will want to check out our family therapy degree, our addictions certificate, and our gifted and talented program. We have these and many, many more. I invite you to spend some time on our website and get to know the many degrees that we offer, both undergraduate and graduate. Our website will also familiarize you with our esteemed faculty and their varied interests.

Undergraduate Degrees
