You’ll learn a great deal about the way people think, feel and behave. In addition, you’ll learn to apply that insight to bigger questions of society, cognition, law enforcement and happiness at work.

    The university’s Division of Psychology is very well respected in professional circles, and the classes are all taught by noted academics, many of the actively researching within the subjects being taught. You’ll have the opportunity to help them with these cutting edge research programs even as you initiate your own experiments and projects under their supervision.
