Meet the Faculty

The psychology Major and Minor use the methods and content of psychological science to teach students to:

  1. understand the reasons behind their own and others’ behavior
  2. become competent and critical decision makers
  3. respect human diversity and
  4. 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.

Minor Requirements

Seven (7) courses are required including the two (2) Foundations courses (PSY 150  and PSY 155 ), the two (2) Scientific Core courses (PSY 250  and PSY 255 ), and three (3) 300-level courses from three (3) domains, one of which must be a w/Lab course:
