|Concentrations & Curriculum Guides
The curriculum in psychology is intended to enhance one's understanding of behavioral science and of oneself and others in terms of concepts developed by study. Undergraduate courses in psychology give students an opportunity to learn what research has shown about:
- how behavior is motivated;
- how people perceive, learn, and think;
- how individuals differ from one another;
- how personality develops from infancy to maturity and is expressed by behavior; and
- how interpersonal factors affect human relationships in the home, on the job, and in the community.
