Psychology


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Rosary College of Arts and Sciences

Students are offered a variety of courses that introduce them to the wealth of information that psychologists have discovered about behavior and mental processes. Psychologists have studied nearly every behavior in which human beings engage. As the science of behavior, psychology includes the study of both human and animal behavior in laboratory and real-world settings. Students collect and analyze research data as a way of understanding the methods that psychologists employ to answer the significant questions that attract us to the study of ourselves and our behavior. Students may major or minor in psychology as well as choose courses to enrich their understanding of behavior or to supplement other areas of study.
