Course Information

Whether you’re interested in why people behave and think the way they do, how social cues influence interactions, or how to effectively treat depression, autism and a range of other disorders—it’s all psychology. Mercyhurst University’s Department of Psychology will prepare you to delve into the neurobiological, sociocultural and emotional processes underlying human behavior. As a psychology major, you’ll build a strong foundation in the traditional areas of psychological theory and experimentation, as well as the specialized areas within the field that address human development, behavior, thinking, motivation, learning, emotion and social interaction. Coursework allows you to explore the mind, behavior and the links between them as you learn to understand and solve human problems—excellent preparation for careers both within and beyond the field of psychology.
