Not a Psychology Major?

The study of Psychology has application in many fields, and the department encourages non-majors to sample broadly from our selection of courses.  

Students can apply Psychology courses to fulfill a number of the College’s General Education Requirements. GER courses include “core” classes offered each year, along with “topic” classes that change each semester.

Many undergraduates take Psychology classes to inform another class or major. Through elective courses that complement other areas of study, students can gain a wider and larger understanding of how the knowledge fits together.

The Department also participates in an interdisiplinary program.  The Neuroscience Program integrates Psychology courses with Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Mathematics into a rigorous interdisciplinary major studying the nervous system.
