Psychology is the basic and applied science of mind and behavior. Psychologists use the methods of both natural and social science to advance our knowledge and understanding of thought, emotion, and behavior in humans and other organisms. Psychologists also apply this knowledge to improve the conditions of individuals and society. The Department of Psychological and Brian Sciences offer two majors in psychology, a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) and a Bachelor of Arts (B.A.).
