Psychology is the science of the mind and behavior. Earn a baccalaureate degree in psychology, and you’ll be prepared for graduate study or a variety of career opportunities.

The psychology curriculum concentrates on the normal course of human development. Courses emphasize the impact of environmental context on the behavior of individuals. You may choose a concentration in cognitive neuroscience, which focuses on the neural substrates of mental processes and how cognitive functions are produced by the brain, or industrial-organizational psychology.

With a psychology major or minor from Manchester, you’ll:

  • gain an understanding of the basic concepts and methods used in psychology;

  • appreciate the relationship of psychology to other disciplines, particularly those in the behavioral sciences;

  • prepare for:
    • graduate work in psychology;
    • professional training in such fields as social work, medicine and education; or
    • work in such fields as business, education and mental health.
