Helping Others Find Happiness
What could be more interesting than understanding the brain and the science behind why people behave the way that they do? The psychology major is an intersection between working with people and delving into research to understand them. One of the greatest strengths of a psychology degree is the enormous variety of career paths that are available to graduates. The demand for psychological services in schools, hospitals, substance abuse treatment centers and social services agencies is expected to fuel the demand for trained professionals. You will learn about the mind and how it works to prepare you for one of these careers.
