The psychology Major and Minor use the methods and content of psychological science to teach students to:
understand the reasons behind their own and others’ behavior
become competent and critical decision makers
respect human diversity and
fulfill their social responsibilities.
With an emphasis on experiential learning and laboratory courses, scientific rigor, quantitative literacy, and verbal and written communication skills, the psychology major provides an excellent background for students planning to join the workforce upon graduation and for those planning to continue their education in graduate school.
Students need to consult a departmental advisor as early as possible to plan course selections. Because of the structure of the major, transfer students should expect to spend at least two (2) years in the Rollins program to complete major requirements.
Twelve (12) courses and a comprehensive exam are required.
