Psychology

The Psychology major offers students a chance to study why people act, think, and feel as they do. This comprehensive undergraduate program, developed in accordance with the guidelines of the American Psychological Association, is designed both for students who plan to go directly into employment upon graduation, and for those students who intend to pursue graduate studies. While many of our students pursue careers in the field of psychology, the skills and knowledge gained from the Psychology major are applicable to many different careers as well. Students have considerable flexibility in choosing courses that are most compatible with their interests and career goals.

The mission of the Psychology Program at Neumann University is to educate our students to be able to contribute to society by thinking clearly, understanding and valuing diversity, applying knowledge in service to others, and respecting the life-long search for understanding. To these ends, we teach our students to think critically, value objectivity, and communicate clearly whether speaking or writing.
