The psychology major offers a broad array of courses that increase our understanding of human actions in the past and present. With this understanding comes the responsibility to improve our relationships with others and to help others to achieve similar understanding and insight into their own behaviors. The program helps prepare the student for entry-level positions in agencies and organizations which seek to help those in need. It should be understood that the requirements for employment in many positions in the helping professions include advanced education beyond the bachelor’s degree.
